Having a figure, having eyes

As I glanced into my workroom this morning, i noticed that the windowsill was pleasant.  It usually is cluttered and unpleasant, so i wondered why it now looks pleasant.  It is because there is a figure there, lending the clutter an air of artistic freedom, and suggesting that graceful humanity can transcend chaos.

Look at this picture.  The wall mount piece has eyes on it, in the dark leather background there are the bullet holes when the deer was slain, and these two bullets became eyes.  And also, the led holes are in pairs, so there are eyes.  Something about the anthropomorphism makes these devices and trinkets "pleasant".
