A ritual masquerade like character design by the French photographer Charles Fréger!

The rituals are centuries old and celebrate the seasonal cycle, fertility, life, and death. People literally put themselves into the skin of the "savage," in masquerades that stretch back centuries. By becoming a bear, a goat, a stag, a wild boar, a man of straw, a devil, or a monster with jaws of steel, these people celebrate the cycle of life and seasons. The costumes amaze with their extraordinary diversity and prodigious beauty.

Work on this project took leading French photographer Charles Fréger to eighteen European countries in search of the mythological figure of the "Wild Man".
