This collage is pieced together from DaVinci's art. Across the neck of the woman is a transparency. I'd scanned in some drawings of ghostly men and women and printed them onto the transparency paper. Unfortunately, when I then did the crackled paint treatment, in wiping the collage down, much of what had been on the transparency went with it. If you look closely, you can still see the faint image of a man on the woman's chest, just above her bodice. Darvin says he likes this because it's "ghostly." I agree. I like the ethereal looking face over the more solid body. Somehow it communicates something to me about how our minds can separate us from the physical.
