Masks which picture the eye- and mouth area correspond to the current ideal of beauty. When put on, however, they cause a contortion of the face. This is meant to show that artificially produced beauty is not always beautiful; instead it can evoke the very opposite. The pictures with the masks should be allegorical for effect of artifically produced beauty. Link here.  photo DSC_7271_zpscbd355eb.jpg  photo toobeautifultobetrue12_905_zps6efe7fba.jpg
