Piece description from the artist
This self portrait symbolizes a few things about myself.
The tiger and bull represent my zodiac signs
The fox fur represents my love for fall and winter
The Vulture represents one of my favorite birds, it's a very misunderstood creature
The rabbits (growing in the eggs) represent not only another favorite animal, but how I feel about my personality at times.
The mums and trees represent my favorite flowers and love for nature
The cake represents…that I love cake :)
