The linen soiled face is sticking its tongue out at you. The fabric, imagery and mark-marking are sensual but also repulsive to me.
Folded, pined and bodily.
Literally half the image has been swapped out for the underside.
It is certainly mocking.
A magical spell - move my planets into alignment.
I get what I want.
A heavenly exchange.
