“Persona” Swiss phychiatrist Carl GustavJung stated in his work revolving human facades that: „Persona is theindividual‘s system of adaptation to, or the manner he assumes in dealing with,the world, and is referred to by Jung as „masks“.However personas can be tricky and is tobe carried with caution; those who identify too strongly with their personas,can run into problems when not being able to disconnect from them. If thepersona is excessive, then our authentic personality evanesces until it becomespractically unrecognizable.This work expresses the multiple layersof masks we as humans wear in different societies and states of our lifes: Fromthe transparent invisible and innocent mask still recognizable for the personalenviroment to the dark shadow lingering mask deeply anchored in humanuncounciousness and hard for the wearer and surroundings to identify.‍
