This sculpture belongs to the series "Eyes-Nose-Mouth", where the sparing use of element reports to cartoon artist as Quino or Mordillo. Also, it relates to a new form of communication - emojis - where the use of the essencial elements of the human face are key to convey intention or emotion to the written text. In this particular piece, the sculptor also was inspired by the philosophy of the Japanese technique of Kintsugi were the imperfections of the process or of the piece are owned and a fundamental part of the end result. Instead of bonding the pieces with gold, the artist opted for a assembly with brass pins so that the raku glazed inside was visible. By doing so, the facial expression of the head is still identifiable but the viewer is invited to enjoy the inside of the piece in relation to the outside of it.

Sandra Borges is born in 1979 in Lisbon. The sculptor mostly based her work on human behavior. Sometimes looking through the stereotypes, sometimes through the eyes of a individual, it is always about how one's personality is formed and how one relates to the other and in society. Working only with Portuguese stone (marbles, limestone`s and breccia), she also mix it with other media if the idea demands it. The result is very personal way to make art objects that link the tradition of stone carving to other materials and plastic languages.
