"THE NARCISSISTS' MIRROR" Oil Paintings by Paula Peacock

The Narcissists' Mirror

28" x  34"
Oil on Canvas
by Paula Peacock

A wilted and almost dried up daffodil (scientific name narcissus) gazes into a tri-folding mirror and sees only himself as beautiful and all else (the purple tulip) surrounding him as not as perfect, beautiful or as delightful as he sees himself to be. When in reality, it is he who is ugly on the inside and outside because of his conceit. The dragonfly represents self delusion and the bubbles allude to the brevity of life.
