Artist's description:

In psychoanalysis, Ego is the division of the psyche that is conscious, most immediately controls thought and behavior, and is most in touch with external reality. Ego is also an identification of the self, especially as distinct from the world and other selves. Ego can also be an appropriate pride in oneself; self-esteem. But, when this understanding of the self or the pride goes out of realistic bounds of human nature and becomes an exaggerated sense of self-importance it turns to conceit. The question is ‘How much is that much?’ When can we judge that the boundaries have been breached between self-esteem and conceit? In spirituality, the ego has been always the villain. Ego stands in the way of love, friendship, kindness and compassion; things that the soul craves. It is like a wasp buzzing in our head, ready to sting. It keeps the hurt and pain alive and never lets it heal completely.
