not unlike the Mardi Gras masks

Encontré esto, que complementa lo hasta ahora expuesto:

Lost cities, liminal realms, and cosmic fear come more or less naturally to Louisiana, which suggests to me that the webwork plot of True Detective will not venture in a supernatural direction, as some have predicted. The chief-most horrors of the show are not voodoo curses or tentacled monsters or consciousness-destroying plays, but environmental slippage, religious perversion, badly mangled family trees. True Detective wears the cosmic-horror genre and its lineage, in other words, not unlike the Mardi Gras masks being worn today all over its native state. The mask is scary, sure enough, but what’s underneath can be even more frightening: one place in the U.S. where anything, it seems, can happen.
