  • When we draw pictures of self/family, we give some degree of understanding about our self image.

  • Note the general lack on hands and feet. Our hands greatly help us cope with the world. Our feet keep us grounded. So when there is an absence of hands and feet, we wonder how the person is coping with solving everyday problems.
