Noesis by ScarletteDeath Noesis by ScarletteDeath
"In philosophy, noesis means understanding, as the ability to sense, or know something, immediately.(...)

(...)Noesis (Greek: νόησις) comes from Greek, and means insight, intellection or intelligence, and understanding akin to hypostasis. (...) In a wider sense noesis is thought, in contrast to sensation (Greek αἴσθησις—aisthesis)."

Art theft is a crime - whenever you steal my photo, a baby unicorn dies. :(

I always see noesis and gnosis as complementary. This is a great play on the "insight" reading
of noesis. At first it reminded me of the Minoan Snake goddess's eyes:

She's associated with KNOSSOS, which is also associated with gnosis.
The photo (especially the way you painted on the eyelid) also reminded me of the eye of Shiva:

But what completes the image/idea for me is the sudden thought of what happens when you
open your eye -- the eye on the eyelid goes back into the head and see's what's inside -- INSIGHT.
Brilliant.

Thank you very much! :aww: The idea of "seeing with your eyes closed" always intrigued me and I felt like I needed to do create something that will always remind me that intuition is equally important as any other human sense. :)

Na prvi je pogled zastrašujuće. Nakon toga fascinira.
