In Jungian psychology there is a concept called the Animus and Anima that states that each male has an inner female and each female has an inner male. Simply put, our goal is to connect with and develop our relationship to this ephemeral part of ourselves. Depending on our relationship, Jung wrote, "they can bring life-giving development and creativeness to the personality, or they can cause petrification and physical death".
The Animus image is a photo of a sculpture of a Roman Emperor on Via dei Fori Imperiali, on the way to the Colosseum superimposed with a photo of the artist. The texture in the very background is macro close up photo of rust and paint on a metal grate. The design was digitally created in several programs.
