Regarding this image, Robert Davidson stated:

"My Grandmother told me a story about a boy who goes into the forest in order to find his spirit. When he comes out of the forest he is in his spirit state. When we re-enact this process through a dance, the dancer wearing the mask is the boy after becoming the man. The medicine man's task is to remove the spirit mask and to reveal the new human.

Masks represent the new state. It is the image of the supernatural made visible by the artist.

This image is about the transformation from one state to another.

This image is about bringing the process of transformation into another sense - the visible sense."
