This portrait by Himitsuhana depicts a young lady in traditional dress holding a mask, yet the mask is a perfect and magical replica of her face.
Referencing the masked balls which were so popular in the 18th century, Himitsuhana has created a curious tableau; the lady looks pensive, with an air of subtle strength and defiance about her. Whereas the mask seems demure and inhibited – perhaps a metaphor for her life? No matter your interpretation, this piece of art is truly captivating.
This beautiful wall art canvas is available in three sizes.
