I made the mask for a ball last year & have had the photo in mind for a while.

I like the idea of this and it has a delightfully spooky, quirky feel. I'm not keen on the colour pop effect of the pink mask against the somber tones of the statue and background. Better for me to desaturate the mask so the pinks are more muted or maybe eve go down the monochrome route?

Is it a composite or did you attach the mask to the statue whilst no-one was looking?

Great title BTW

Thanks Dave, not a composite, I did tie the mask on Smile It's in a very old part of the cemetery Smile I have taken the colours of the mask down by over 60% as it is very, bright, the feathers and beads are hot pink. But I could take it down more. I'll try to add a variant to see what you think.
Thanks for the input.

For me I think the colour popping works and works well in this very imaginative and well contrived image.

Thanks for sharing

Nice to see the two side by side ....... Mono for me as I think it all just sits together more comfortably.
