This piece replicates a woman wearing a bird mask, conveying the theme of "repetition and a return to archetypes," which captures the essence of human life in society. Humans form orderly societies as a means of controlling chaos, making law and order a prerequisite for human civilization. The artwork depicts how the coexistence of chaos and order creates a repetitive cycle, much like the reflections found in opposing mirrors. The mask symbolizes a sociable personality and represents how human coexistence can result in an endless repetition of patterns, much like the reflections found in opposing mirrors.
