This work was created by the artist as part a series of several hundred small collages on wood. At the time, his long-time partner and now husband, was a graduate student in clinical psychology. The triptych casts Freud in the roles of his own three-part structural model of the psyche: id, ego and super-ego. Hayward chose to depict the id, source of our bodily needs, desires and impulses, by placing an image of Freud as a young man on a body taken from Tom of Finland’s Service Station
