One eye, one ear, and half a tongue

The Concept: We censor ourselves to avoid provoking anger or hard feelings from others.  We censor ourselves to avoid any wicked thoughts or to show our flaws publicly. We sometimes censor ourselves to avoid being labeled politically, culturally, or religiously. Cutting my own tongue using a scissor, which is the most common symbol of censorship, represents “self-censorship”.   Cutting the ear represents our intolerance to criticism and avoiding hearing it. 

The right side of the brain is in charge of comprehending visual imagery and it controls the muscles on the left side of the body, so cutting the left eye represents neglecting the creative and artistic side of us.
