Masked figure: Mnemosyne,
Mother of the nine Muses and Greek
female personification of memory.

wears the mask of Lethe, forgetting .
She partially covers an Earth Mother figure or Gaia,
goddess personifying the
and represents our loss of a close connection to Nature. She
releases birds, our primal connection to the universe
