Norman believed in Nietzsche's theory that everyone at some time dons a 'metaphorical' mask in order to disguise his or her real feelings. He titled his autobiography My Mask, and used the mask as a device in various media including etching —Madam Mystery, Death's Mask, Which Mask? and Dreams.
His woodblock print The Mask (the only one in this series depicting a mask) has a close affinity with the etching Dreams. Although the models are different, the masks are identical and the gossamer drapes similar.
