The masks in the photographic project Animas represent the link in a disturbing relationship between the animal and the divinity. Masking means appearing in the form of another entity. In all the villages, each Anima has its own history and meaning, with a mystical, spiritual, and sacred value, for cathartic and liberating purposes.
From an early age, children choose their own mask, which they keep for the rest of their lives. The animal-god metamorphosis thus stems from an impulse that takes the form of the mask and is transformed into a ritual act. The rite is a dream in time, masking is a destiny.
