In the artist's words: "This painting is about the masks we use in our life. We all have a mask for each different moment or event. We adopt some attitude according to whose we are and the situation we are experiencing. We can use them as fun or as protection. Some communities used to rituals and dancing. And some more used as funerary places. Some people think they give power or superiority. This warrior have in their heads an animal which gives each of them an attribute. Could be the attributes of the jaguar, leopard or snake."
