About the Artwork

The world is a masquerade; face, dress, voice, everything is feigned. Everybody wants to appear as what he is not; everybody deceives, and nobody knows anybody.


El mundo es una máscara, el rostro, el trage y la voz, todo es fingido. Todos quieren aparentar lo que no son, todos engañan y nadie se conoce.
