through the distorted looking glass - a self portrait

What exactly is the driving force behind a self portrait?Is it an obsession with immortality tht makes us sketch out our face on something more lasting than a looking glass?Or maybe it must be that the looking glass doesn't give us back a creation of our own ... or maybe it shows the distortions we do not want to see or maybe it does not show the distortions we want to see...or maybe i'm just confused why my self portarait is not looking anything like me :)
