Staring creates a tension and connection between the subject and the viewer. It can feel intimate and seductive or menacing and volatile. The eyes are the windows to the soul and connecting with sight uncovers our true selves.

This opposition in intent can have similarities in practice. Armour is a physical representation of both power and beauty whereas decoration can mask our vulnerabilities and insecurities.
