This is a picture with a long history. It's a page from my school diary. The most significant motive is three portraits of a guy from our class, my friend of old. In that time he was using to do several not-so-nice things to me so I decided to portrait him (or, to portray him, to depict him, to make caricatures of him). And that was my sweet revenge. Today I regret that revenge so I let the portraits grow through with layers. Revenge doesn't bring any good fruit. The friend that I portrayed so felt a pity for me doing such a thing. He couldn't grasp why I made fun of him when we were so good friends. Well, it could be discussed but that wasn't a reason for a revenge.
(The friend also added an inscription that it’s actually him but as a sturdy fortyish man. He wrote it like “40tyish” so I corrected him he should actually write “4tyish”☺)
Another guy portrayed me here as a circle with eyes, mouth, ear and sparse hair to show me how I'm extremely fat. So I wrote that was actually me but with 120kg added. My weight is about 120kg nowadays so… who was true at that time? The revenge came back to me.
Yet another guy added a lead with an inscription “120kg” to let me know that I'm really that fat (so that the 120kg go in that lead to be able to say I'm still so fat). I added an inscription that it's his work (quoting his name). Let's say I made a step from revenge to self-defence: Look, people, this guy makes bad jokes of me.
The round portrait of myself is now flooded with layers. Even the 120kg lead and the author inscription are gone. I'm glad I let them sink because I regret the revenge. I've grown up. God heals my wounds using time as his healing water. His corals grow in layers and cover everything that was once broken and painful.
If you look thoroughly, you can find a geometry homework on the picture. There is also a “WIÊT-NÅM” inscription. I was amazed by the Vietnamese language at that time. There is also an inscription reading “Oymyakon” in written Azbuka, the Russian alphabet. I liked the word in a manner. You can also see a Moa sculpture like those on the Easter Island. I used to like the mysteries of that place. And that's all I can describe on this picture.
