unbalanced

This drawing is of a souvenir from a trip to Greece that I took many years ago.  While touring the island of Lesvos, I stopped in an old church and noticed numerous small silver plaques hanging on a wall.  Each plaque had a repousse image of a body part.  Upon leaving the church, I walked by a small store selling the votive plaques which are left in the church as a plea for healing.  I purchased a few plaques, leaving one votive at the church in hopes that an old injury to my ear would cure my occasional vertigo.
