Well, that's Helen Keller, the "First Lady of Courage" ! She was deaf and blind but her determination to succeed in life has made her famous.

OMG, I was just looking at this painting about an hour ago. Freaky.

I just got really lucky. There's a Braille Institute here in La Jolla area and someone was asking me where it was. My last company, we used to have our all employee meeting there and I was just looking around on some sites and saw the painting.

Okay, I think this is an easy one but I'm still at work and don't have too much time to look for something really good.

What is this?

if you use your imagination it looks like an abstract fish with the "hole" of the cave being its gills............this is an artsy way of saying "No clue" :)

Not having and arts background myself, I feel completely comfortable saying, "No clue!".

Ha, it does sort of look like the shape of a fish. Some kind of salt water, angel fish (I think??). Or maybe I just need more coffee.

DrThunder88 is on the right track.
