And like a portal to one’s inside, it can reveal a lot, even things that cannot or would not be said with words. It really is the window to the soul and the mirror of our world. Gazes of animals are mesmerizing and at the same time a powerful reminder of who we are in this world and of how co-dependent we all are on the planet we share.Get your masterpiece today and sink deep into the beauty of living eyes.
