What lies beneath...
Beasts from all cultures, all over the world wear and perform in masks. Masks are used to tell stories, to create characters, to bring the spirits into a group or community.
This Beast wears masks. A branch of an apple tree, covered with blossoms. What does that mask say to you?
Look at that expression! Who is this foxy fellow! Up to no good, I'll bet. But perhaps that is just the misbehavior that we all need on occasion.
But who is that under the mask?
Who is to say what color and vibrancy exists within any soul? Sometimes, it shows up in the performances we play...with our masks!
