Gaze presents an image of a girl with a ponytail looking at a flower that is a corporeal extension looping from her spinal cord. It symbolizes a state of self-consciousness. Feathers are attached in the shape of a large wing on the transverse side. Although the wing has no mobility, viewers can see each feather trembling in the wind.
