The work replicates a woman wearing a bird mask to convey the theme, "repetition and a return to archetypes," capturing the essence of humans living in society. Humans form orderly societies, as controlling chaos using law and order is a prerequisite for human civilization. The work depicts how the coexistence of chaos and order creates repetitions like those found in opposing mirrors. The mask represents a sociable personality and shows how human coexistence results in endless repetitions like those found in opposing mirrors.
