Man in the mask

Artist modeling his mask

 

I also see this as image of someone trapped by his own delusions about himself and the world. I feel like this often enough!

    I thought I commented on this before, but I see I did not. This image is so great. I love the soft feeling and desaturation.

    reminds me of our folk "hero" ned kelly

    At about dawn on Monday 28 June 1880 Ned Kelly emerged from the inn in his suit of armour. He marched on to the police firing his gun at them, while their bullets bounced off his armour. His lower limbs however were unprotected and he was shot twenty-eight times in the legs (sources vary, some saying six times). The other Kelly Gang members died in the hotel, Joe Byrne allegedly by loss of blood due to a gunshot wound that severed his femoral artery, and Dan Kelly and Steve Hart by self-ingestion of poison (autopsies were not performed).

    to add

    Edward "Ned" Kelly (c. 1854 – 1880) is Australia's most famous bushranger, and, to some, a folk hero for his defiance of the colonial authorities. He was known as the "Man in the Iron Mask"

    that's it

    Often our masks reveal more than they conceal.

    So called primitive people used masks to have power over the unknown, Have you noticed how we still use masks in the modern world to protect us from what is dangerous and often unseen forces?
