Like his colleagues in the Linien, Høst Exhibition and CoBrA artist groups, he was fascinated by Primitivism. The mask motif was inspired by African and South-East Asian art. In the European version the mask's original ritualistic function was transformed into a surrealistic statement, embodying people's most profound thoughts and instincts.
