In this case the symbolism points to disillusionment with what was once tacitly accepted, also therefore of the necessity of negotiating what arises in the face of hidden truths being revealed. As masks, and layers of inauthentic self, become peeled away, we are asked to let go of what no longer serves to make space for a more conscious, intentional experiences of ourselves and of reality.
