Does that cause you to disorient? When looking at the picture, I also got the wrong impression first time around, that the boy was behind, hugging his mum. Having to get your head around turning their heads around can be one way to disorient, a feeling all too familiar with dyslexic individuals. Disorientation is defined as a feeling of confusion, resulting in a state of disorientation, caused by a mind searching for meaning. Mental perception does not reflect the reality of the environment.
