MASK 2 by Cosimo Piro

Currently unavailable for purchase

view with MASK1

within each dream
there are more dreams
and within them
many more
to finally
show their hidden faces.
If I stand alone
long enough
holding my breath
my child soul
comes out
from shifting shadows
to take my hand
and pull me
beyond my mask
to view
what I have become.
From this standpoint
we both walk
into wakefullness.


soul, dream, child, hand, alone, mask, hidden, quietly, unfold

    I had to view this larger! This has an air of mysticism about it. It’s eerie and it sucks you in and the eyes (the eyes especially), both on the mask and above it delve right into you. It’s as if you’ve painted a face into a mirror and showed us ourselved in it. Like we’re looking right into ourselves.

  • wow…quite an interpretation….thanks so much. xoxo

    Oh Cos – I am honestly without words to express just how powerfully moving this image is and how intensely your words have touched something so elemental in me. If I could favorite this a hundred times I would, but you can be sure that I will read it that many times without ever feeling the importance of its message diminish in my heart and soul. Incredible – all of it!

  • I am so chuffed that this has touched you Lianne. I must confess that initially I wasn’t going to post as it may frighten some….and reading some comments it has….but it was something that I had to get out here. Many thanks to you Lianne. xoxo

    wonderful words Mr C, I see an eeriness of childhood in the picture, a darkside.
    maybe it’s just me?

  • there is an eeriness to this Thomas….I was hoping to capture the misunderstood nature of our deepest dreams…..where in truth our most buried dreams tell us the deepest truth. Many thanks to you Thomas.
