Line drawing of an old mask vendor sitting amongst his wares

Mask Maker

The mask maker sits, camouflaged among his wares. It is interesting to note that his own face is hidden, while he shows us many faces in different states of emotion. Is it just a picture of a craftsman and his wares, or does it make a comment on the essential isolation and self protective, secretive nature of the human heart and the disguises we give ourselves to present to the various worlds we inhabit?
