Timidity and Indecision

Inspired by Boris Artzybasheff's surreal illustrations of timidity and indecision, I decided to take my own shot at representing these concepts. 

Timidity is represented by the depiction of a person finding comfort inside a tortoise shell. The obscured part of her body can be seen as an X-ray on the surface of the shell. I wanted this piece to communicate both the fear of the unknown and the concealment of what's vulnerable.

Indecision is a disagreement with the self, as if multiple minds are competing to make a decision. This idea is represented by an MRI scan with multiple brains filling the space where a regular brain would normally sit.
