Digital collage comprising three elements layered to form a self-portrait of Taranaki artist Dale Copeland. The background layer is a dusky brown colourfield from which a photograph of Copeland at age 5 emerges on the left. A colour photograph occupies the ceter of the composition and slightly overlaps the figure of the five year old girl. The colour photograph shows Copeland age 40 reflected in a mirror. A doll's head, a human skull and a blue vase of pink flowers overlap the reflection. The photograph has a white boarder. An x-ray taken of Copeland's right hand when she was 69 years old reaches up and over the other two elements from the lower right of the composition. Copeland was wearing a thumb ring when the x-ray was taken, it appears as a startlingly white loop on the skeleton thumb in the image.

A collection of 111 collages of various media by various artists. The collection comprises a collage from each of the 111 artists from around the world who participated in the 15th International Collage Exchange (ICE15) which took place from March 2012 to March 2013. The International Collage Exchange is organised by Dale Copeland annually. Each year participating artists make 13 collages and send them to Dale. Each artist nominates one of their works to form a collection that is donated to an art institution somewhere in the world and another to be offered for sale at an exhibition in Taranaki. The remaining collages are shared out amongst the participating artists. Copeland chose Puke Ariki to receive the ICE15 collection. The artists who participated in ICE15 and are represented in the collection are: Dale Copeland, Laurie Lee, Marian Hoffman Ting, Judith Mangiameli, Elizabeth Concannon, Robert Tucker, Richard Fulham, Valerie Arntzen, Mimi Shapiro, Pascale Hulin, Jenny Newbound, Anne Holliday, Sandy Styer, Martha Whittemore, Elissa Gordon, Marcy Rutledge, Ken Berryman, Jean Tock, Joan Schulze, L.
