Walnut table, created specifically to display the artist's book, Modern Names for Timeless Battles. Table design is inspired by an illustration from the same book.
Modern Names for Timeless Battles pairs disorders from the DSM Manual with images from Greek mythology. Struggles, such as anxiety, depression, and substance abuse are shared throughout humanity, not confined to a specific place and time. Since the beginning of time, humans have been battling. We just keep renaming those battles.
This art piece is featured in my book Living and Creating with PTSD.
