Mute symbolism
The drawing was made by a 20-year-old schizophrenic. Pigeons that form the figure of a female breast, suggest
that the artist had an abnormal fixation by his mother.

This painting was produced by an anonymous mental patient and is part of a colection "Though This Be Madness", Thames & Hudson, London, 1961.
