Snakeskin may either refer to the skin of a live snake, leather of a dead snake or the shed skin after moulting. The shedded skin is a symbol of new life and rejuvenation. When the snake starts shedding its skin, it is its weakest time. It is believed that the snake dies and is reborn.
The scales are inspired by the texture and pattern on a snakeskin. The using of transparent material gives a sense that it acts a part of the wearer. The masking and taking it off from the body represents the process of shedding skin. It also hides the human features of the face.
