"The parts that hides the eyes of every character portrayed combine with the nobility that the paintings exude. Delicate and with a luminous coating, sales are fundamentally artist-created gems, promising the function of ornament own of those who have the privilege of owning them and flaunt them.
We could take them for masks, disguises of personas we recognize, but they don't let the vision option to individuals previously immortalized, When your pictures were frozen and eternalized during your capture by original artists. Are really sales, with your totalitarian aspect and Choker.
Unable to face his admirers – us, the public-, masked celebrities keep their expressions that they attributed their authors.
