This is not a self Portrait
In every ancient western civilization, glorious statues and masterful artworks were commissioned to commemorate and immortalize heroic figures. THIS IS NOT A SELF PORTRAIT challenges these old traditions by masking the hero’s identity behind bandages to create an aurora of mystery. Meanwhile, the hanging Chinese tassel adds an Asian element to symbolize the concept of re-interpretation of western art. Each piece is handmade to bring an extra unique touch to any space.
