Some drawers and “fans” jajajaja, have asked, why do you use those creepy masks? why not other type of masks? Why not do your work as other people? And easy, why? Because I don’t want to do it as many other people, I want to do it as I want, with my style and the way I love it amathalovers, so that is the simple reason why I don’t do my boudoirs as many other persons.
But let me retrun to the topic of this blog, with the creepy masks? In my previous blog entrance I talked about, How I select my mask for my boudoirs?, So in this entrance I will answer, why those “creepy” designs?, Again, another revealing story that will help you sleep better at night. by knowing the answer,, I know, I am on fire, jajajaja.
Well, most of my masks are designs taken from the Mexican Catrina, which is a character from their celebration of the Day of the Dead, which is a beautiful festivity, where dead is seen in a different way.
But talking about the Catrina, the summary of her story goes like this: “was a character created to mock mexican high society during Porfirio Diaz presidency and the way they treated other “lower and not so important” persons, so the Catrina was created by José Guadalupe Posada as a character that denies her roots, as a dead woman really well dressed, pretending to be someone he or she is not, that tries to reflect the injustice that existed in those times and then Diego Rivera included this character in his paintings. Thats a short summary of why the Catrina was created.
The character was created to show injustice in those times, but unfortunately, it is known that rejection for other persons, “different persons”, still exists, and it is worldwide, persons that doesn’t go with the flow of society; so why not continue to reflect how I am against the racism, the discrimination, pretending to be someone you are not, etc., so I like to go against the flow, to be how I want to be and show how I think everyone should be, the way they want to be and that their opinion has to be respected.
So, thats why I like to use the Catrina masks, hope the idea behind this masks is now more understandable and you can understand part of the purpose behind this type of masks.
I know, I have used other type of masks, like the Fox Mask, the Black Skull Mask and the Venice Mask, but why I am using those masks?, will be for another blog entrance, meanwhile this huge question mark, that didn’t let you sleep has been resolved and now you can have a calm and better sleep, jajajaja, you are welcome ajajaja.
