A mask representing a ghost suffering in hell. Lean flesh barely disguises the skeletal structure of this mask. Sunken eyes and weakly open mouth both turn down. The lack of lower teeth and thin limpid lines of hair adds to the sense of impassiveness. The bland, earthy coloring appears bloodless. Only the metallic eyeballs highlighted with vermilion suggest an affinity with the superhuman. While some Yaseotoko masks have broad faces with wide-set eyes, others have smaller features set closer together.
I'm a nehiyaw artist, living in amiskwaciwâskahikan. I'm a traditional old school & portrait artist, I'm currently dabbling in portrait film photography & 90's grudge & wireframe pieces. I've been using these methods to modernizing traditional indigenous art for the last few years now. The word wâpos is nehiyawewin (cree) for rabbit, which is why there's a wâpos in all my prints.
