Midas Touch

This mask is based on the mythical King Midas and carries the message that we should be careful what we wish for: yet another theme I'm fond of using. I try to be content with my life and who I am, but can't help but think what if? What if...... and of course, that lead to wishing. I sure wish I wouldn't do that!

This is an older piece and I'm sure I had a reason for the coin on top of the head - but I can't remember exactly why I put it there. It probably has something to do with mechanical functions and automatic responses.....

  1. This is so so spooky - just as I was looking at this photo I looked up at the TV and saw a still head shot of someone in exactly the same pose! (on Biography). Wow. That is more than coincidence.
