The man without a mask, the man with a hundred masks

Francis Debeyre is an artist who lives in Lille. He started making masks in his garden 35 years ago.

He has been working for all kinds of stages: theatre, circus, dance, any other kind of performance.

This Sunday was the last day of the extended exhibition called The Man Without a Mask, whose original French pun “The man with a hundred masks” cannot really be translated.

Do you know other phrases that can’t be adapted from one language to the other?

If you didn’t see it, here is a link to the exhibition btw. (Link no longer works.)

Enjoy and have a nice week!

:-)

Thank you for this post Jean-François! Some of the masks are really impressive. (Have you taken the photos yourself?)
