Sculptural headpieces and animalistic warrior masks captivate the viewer in photographer Marie Rime's "Armures" image series. The photo series combines vivid hues with a variety of ethnic motifs that are both surrealist and eye-catching when translated in front of the camera.

This set of visually striking portraits takes inspiration from tribal warrior garb and follows in the footsteps of cultures who wear masks in ceremonies of war, marriage and death.

Marie Rime's "Armures" image series features an array of highly decorated subjects. Despite of resembling priceless artifacts, the photographer's tribal masks and accessories are anything but, being constructed out of ordinary household materials.

From toothpicks and straws to sandpaper pieces, these photographs play with perception and immerse the viewer into a colorful dreamscape.
