Self Portrait #12 Mask 2
day in disguise
masking the night
Two Lantern poems (isn’t that a great name? and the shape!) as suggested by Jane Dougherty in her weekly challenge.
You may remember that I ended up leaving my self portrait #12 open for the insertion of new masks, and for this second one I used another Native American reference: Northwest Coast raven moon masks. Raven and Moon are important in tribal life. Raven is the creator of light, a trickster who stole the stars, moon, and sun, and put them in the sky. Moon, a transformational symbol, is both protector and spirit guide.
The original mask was based on Hopi Kachina dolls. I’m not sure if we’re still designating the 25th of each month as selfie day, but if so, why not a mask?
