The paradox of the portraiture competition
An artistic portrait representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. It shows a person looking directly at the viewer in order to most successfully engage the subject with him. Paradox, a seemingly absurd or self-contradictory statement that is or may be true, an opinion that conflicts with common belief. Strange, out of the ordinary, unusual, striking, eerie, weird, mysterious or fascinating.
