The initial sketch for this drawing started in fact as a doodle, just to warm me up for making another drawing which I will post later. The original mask can be seen in the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford, Great Britain. A rough wooden mask worn during the carnival and then hung over the stable door or in front of the hay as protection.
I don't know where to protect against, but what I do know is when I draw masks I allways see someones face in it. As in this drawing I see several faces of people I know.
Pen and watercolor, black and white.
