Eye Development

Cover legend

"Seeing is what matters. Seeing must suffice." René Magritte (1898-1967, Belgium). In this 1935 version of the surrealist Le Faux Miroir (The False Mirror) first painted by René Magritte in 1928, the inverted iris/pupil acts as a mirror of the exterior world instead of being the mirror of the soul. In his art, Magritte used the unexpected to liberate our conventional vision from its obscurity, in order to glimpse the hidden mystery of the visible world. As Magritte says "Everything we see hides another thing".
