Icones by Marc Thirouin is a series of photos that features women who have had their faces covered with paper bags. Not only are their faces hidden, but they have been replaced with pictures of prophets.

These images are captured in morbid lighting that gives the women an eerie aura. One is struck with curiosity as to why there are paper bags over there heads and what they could possibly be hiding behind their prophet masks. All of the women also appear to be holding some type of food or drink including cake and an old fashioned Coca-Cola bottle. Perhaps these paper-bagged prophets are just hungry and there is actually no symbolism behind it.
