A portrait drawing representing an ego struggling with the direction of a human's decisions

Described as “a wrong direction,” Fatemeh’s drawing is a portrait of one’s ego.

“Although people might not mind violating these moral boundaries, they unconsciously feel that something is not right,” said Fatemeh, regarding her inspiration for the contest entry. "My piece illustrates the moment that our ego begs for the wholeness of human qualities while it is being betrayed by our decisions."
