The first mirrors date to about 6000BC made from polished volcanic glass. The question is: Did everyone in a household or tribe use them at that time? Before the mirror was discovered, how did we view ourselves? Perchance someone caught sight in a stream, lake or bucket. If we take away the mirror how can we tell what we look like? What is our face then?

Today we have many ways of taking pictures, setting up avatars, scanning, mimicking, pulling, exfoliating, cutting, tucking, and stretching. Believing that somehow what we see is who and what we are. Can the eyes see the eyes? Can they see the nose? Cheek? Chin?

They are more than just a visual representation and an idea. Where does the nose start and the ear begin?

Where does the hair start and the Birds in the sky begin?
