Mayo believes, that the tree major questions that we seek answers to in life, ’Where do I come from? Where am I? Where am I going?’, causes us to create masks.
For her, these masks are like the characters we create in order to express emotion. Mayo goes on to say that, in her view, “rich” civilization has lost this need to find our true selves beneath the mask of “others” characters.
She says “It is different in places where the world really isn’t a fairy tale, where getting food is equally essential to breathing air. In these places, fairy tale is still about the battle between good and evil, in the CLEANEST FORM!”
