Ah, here we go. This is based on Creative Commons work, but it is fully credited and at least the borrower did something to add to the image. Does the galaxy sleep or is it winking, or blinking, or just have a speck in its eye? We will never live long enough to know. Points for lazy creativity, Artist.

Congrats to Griseus for the aptly titled gold, and to whoever shielded their audacity under the Anonymous account!

This piece is just what it says on the tin, an attempt to apply the prompt to something else that is spirally. I knew I would want the image of a barred spiral galaxy to best fit the aspect ratio of an eye. The closed lid was drawn in Illustrator and enhanced slightly in Photoshop.
