The focal areas of this painting all land within a cross formation. The vertical axis traces her strong and steady pose. Her piercing gaze at the viewer is intended to reflect this as well. Her breasts, hands and hair occupy the horizontal axis meant to illustrate that the body is an illusion. Her figure literally opens up into another form that is lying underneath. Her faces too are also a part of that same illusion. One with a strong frontal gaze and another that looks away, slightly concealed.
