This is the picture of a young woman who painted the two faces of her father. The left side means that she was chased by the sexual drive of her father. At this side cocks and suns (both paternal symbols) appear among sinister arabesques coming out of her head. In the right side, peaceful, father's torment has been repressed.
This painting was produced by an anonymous mental patient and is part of a collection "Though This Be Madness", Thames & Hudson, London, 1961.
