Six-Sided Self-Portrait

Each of the four life-size wooden female figures in Women and Dog is a self-portrait of the artist Marisol. The central figure includes a black-and-white photograph of the artist, and the multiple faces on the two adjacent figures are plaster casts of her face too. The small girl represents Marisol as a child. 

Look closely at Women and Dog. Then, create a six-sided self-portrait.
