Most people know the saying "Eyes are the windows to your soul." Well, this 22-year-old artist from the Maldives created a whole project based on that. Her name is Maldha Mohamed and she paints beautiful, realistic eyes full of emotion. "I felt inspired by painting the eyes as I'm a firm believer that the eyes are the only part of one's being that can truly depict a person's vulnerability," she told Bored Panda.

Maldha also mentioned that she wants to convey the emotions by drawing just an eye, not the full face: "I felt inspired to paint just the eye because an expression can be interpreted a thousand different ways."

"While I do give them names such as lust & desire, there are people that see it as something more, as a completely different emotion. It excites me to paint them, as I try to make them as raw as possible, to give it depth and life as I won’t be creating the same eye twice." What emotion do you see in the paintings?

I believe the paint clumps are there because the eye is so realistic that it helps the viewer to realize it's not a still photograph. I love it
