Academics, historians, archaelogists, all of them - they struggled for years to uncover the true facts behind the work of this artist. Who was the person behind these remarkable works that were beloved by fans and valued by clients all over the world? Who was the genius behind the mask? A conference was held in which experts debated possible theories - could their talent have been explained by the fact that they were secretly a collective? Or a front for an underground sweatshop? Or perhaps they were bestowed with imagemaking powers as their home planet crumbled to pieces and they were sent to earth to keep us safe, with pictures? These were all possible. Then there was the other guy, in the corner, who suggested that maybe they just didn't give us a bio. He was laughed out of the room, and the rest of the experts met in the bar for drinks.
