Jenny Lehmann, a German artist, has shared Zelda fan art that develops upon the lore of Majora’s Mask. The artist writes: “While playing Majoras Mask you get to know a lot about the mask of Majora, that obviously caused lots of trouble … An evil soul lives in the mask and overtakes the mind of the stupid ones who wear the mask. At the end of the game you even see three states of incarnation of that soul – but you never get to know about the one who — probably — made it, or at least was eponym for it.” Lehmann speculates, “They meant to make Majora some kind of male god of war, but I always saw Majora as a woman.”

While the artists seeks to put a human face to the mask, the portrait asks more questions than it answers. What do you make of the character depicted and what does she imply about the history of the mask?
