Conscience by Quiriter Conscience by Quiriter
This is how I see Conscience.
In my way The Conscience is the right choice - wen we do something right it doesn't go against our conscience.
"The right choice" is the balance between our heart's decisions, and our mind's decisions, and here, on this illustration they introduced with heart and brain, that lie on scales.
The Conscience entangled with chains, it symbolizes that Conscience completely dependents from scales. I used chains 'cause it's more suitable here - it can be our logical chains.
There are also some dark figures are hanging on the scales. They are our desires, trying to persuade the decision to their's sides.
The figure of Conscience is similar with the crucifix nonrandom. I wanted to show that Conscience is most suffering nature.
Feathers behind the Conscience are just my association with Egypt mythology. In afterworld's court there were scales in, where people hearts were weighted with the feather of the goddess of truth Maat.

Совесть
Фигура представляет собой совесть. И позиционируется она как "верное решение", то есть оптимальный баланс решений чувства, здесь они представлены сердцем, и решений разума, представленного мозгом. Совесть опутана цепями, что символизирует зависимость от "чаш", полную связанность ими, более того выбраны именно цепи как цепочки мыслей, рассуждений или эмоций. Фигура совести замкнутая, у нее нет ног, а их теоретические заменители образуют собой восьмерку, тем указывая, что это завершенное явление, это решение.
На чашах с сердцем и мозгом повисли темные фигуры, они символизируют желания, которые стремятся перетянуть "верное решение" на свою сторону.
Вполне очевидно, что некоторым образом фигура напоминает распятие, это сделано для того, чтобы представить совесть как наиболее страдающую сущность, и хотя ее решения справедливы и верны, она, как правило, страдает.
Перья на фоне уже являются ассоциативным дополнением на предмет справедливости. Так в египетской мифологии есть сюжет о взвешивании сердца умершего с пером из крыла богини справедливости, чтобы установить насколько он был грешен.

If you like it? you can use this drawing as a logo. But, as you understand, I'll save the rights on this drawing. Do you need a picture whithout "deviant" watermark?
