I think you have a great theme for this A-Z Challenge. I really like this mask and your title. It reminds me of writing poetry.
This is my first challenge and I am so glad I did it. I definitely will participate in the reflection.
Umm, you're using a mask to illustrate true nature? I guess it means that true nature is elusive because we wear masks. By the way, in Greek drama, a "hypocrite" was a player who wore a mask.
I think I will go wordless next year!
lovely mysterious mask!
I'm sometimes surprized by the way I react to certain situations, so yes our true nature is indeed elusive.
Makes me think of Venice a couple of hundred years ago.

That is one beautiful mask.
People wear their masks all the time. Drives me crazy. Just be yourself!

What a thought-provoking mask. This would be a perfect one to wear to a masquerade ball or party or one to duplicate in paper mache. I remember making masks in 8th grade art class, we molded them on each others faces using wet newspapers — ah memories.
I cannot think on anything else but me. I'm a mystery to myself.
