Self-portrait

I´ve wanted to make a self-portrait since I´ve read that fabulous book about mixed-media self-portraits, so I´ve had a lot of ideas, but it has been hard to decide which to use. Now here´s a portrait of mine made with stamps - a one-winged person, groping, collecting memories (symbolized as eggs), with a beak that says I´m well-fortified as well as defenseless, carrying my ancestors in my body and a ship on my head that doesn´t know where to go ...
