Mmm personally I find this picture interesting because of what is being censored. She is wearing a mask and is featureless because of the hands. It renders the impression that she has no individuality or control.

Everyone will have a different interpretation of this, mine is that this represents someone who is being kept ignorant for the sake of keeping them in a submissive or dependant state, as if they will easily accept someone else's judgement on what is right or wrong.

Evil is a part of the world, and to be alive you must face it! This kinda feels as if the subject is literally 'turning a blind eye' towards the realities of life

"Bury yourself - You are dead already!" was my first thought... as always, when I come across this phrase.
(You surely do know the three apes, don´t you?)

I would blur the added three hands a little to match to the background....
mask is a good idea IMO - this underlines the loss of identity, if you try to "see, hear, speak no evil"

The problem is (of course) the definition of "evil" -
and the fact, that ignorance is much more comfortable... *puts on pink glasses* :iconpinkiepiejumpplz:

Wow this is a really powerful picture. This is only what i got from it and i'm not sure you intended this but it seems the girl in the mask is a victim of society. Her face is in a mask because she cannot take to see it everyday even though she is probably beautiful but society made her feel ugly. She couldn't take their taunts anymore so her ears are covered. Again her eyes are covered because she hates seeing herself. Her mouth covered because she can't say anything to make it stop. Anyway this is just what i got from it only my interpretation. I think this picture is extremely powerful and moving.
