Lehman College Art Gallery of The City University of New York. New York, 1984, unpaginated, no. 28, ill., quotes the artist's suggestion that this drawing "may deal with an edge of mystical awareness and perception–a lens, a prism, an eye into, within the mountains, horizon, landscape, a spiritual landscape, a macro, micro feeling into the iconography, calligraphy of the earth and sky as they mirror and echo and reflect one another...It is an eye of art; it is looking at you; it is asking you to see from within yourself...".
