"Manco" - Cubism and the Brain

“Manco” - The analytical cubism and fragmentation of a Peruvian nativity doll. 

By strategically moving the doll in space during the span of time in which it was being observed and trapped into a moment… that is the image you see.  However, your visual system has only just now completed a similar process of perception, analysis, and fragmentation…

All the aspects which make up a picture are disassembled and sent as separate signals which travel to different parts of the brain to be analyzed independently.  Truly, it is in the mind of the beholder that the artwork reaches completion and the concept completes its full circle.
