what a migrane looks like

pretty accurate I'd someone that frequently experiences migranes.

I came across this while going through the wellcome collection image archive.

"Painting of a barn showing the visual phenomena the artist experiences during a migraine. Visual confusion, overlaying and flattening of images, pulsating kaleidoscopic colours of an intense hue and sparkling white ‘stars’ have been analysed as representative of basilar migraine. These features lead to the visual confusion and discomfort experienced during an attack."
