Beautiful. So, what is the gift? Sight? Or, is there something about the etching on the eye and the accompanying pattern to the eyelashes that cause some sort of super power that's the gift? Anyway, this is wonderfully done, like your work usually is.
Yes, it really is a wonderful gift. I am thankful for all our senses, but most assuredly sight and hearing. Part of the reason I dabble in sculpture as well as painting is so that if my sight begins to fail as I age, sculpting by feel might be an option. Sounds strange, I suppose, but my sight hasn't been great since I was a young child. Might as well practice, just in case, and be thankful for every day of sight. So, I understand.
