I couldnít wait to post this deviation just one day before moving to my Mom! It looks like itís going to be for 2 weeks or so!
Generally speaking, I believe that t when men grieve; they tend to cave in inside themselves, they prefer to be left alone until they get it out of their system! Of course u neednít to know that this case is totally unlike women </b>
This humble deviation is dedicated to my dear friends who were kind enough to have it featured

Excellent, really. You could capture the essence of a grieving man so well ! To see a man suffering is one of the most saddening views. We are used to see women crying, but men are taught that to be real males they need to show strength and hide feelings. How wrong! Sensitivity doesn't make them less "machos".
I enjoy very much checking the stocks when linked. Thank you so much for that! It's a great way to learn new techniques and enjoy works so much better!
Beautiful work, I love the concept behind it, you had an amazing idea for this. The piece is really full of emotion and the black&white fits it just perfectly, it makes it look even more poetic and sentimental.
amazing and so needful....great work and even greater subject to discuss and share our thoughts... I believe there's no difference between man and women ...the grief has the same root - missing connection with ...in various conditions and aspects...
Men grieve differently from women. Our cultural roles make it difficult for men to look for support, and harder again to accept it. Men are so often silent, solitary mourners who immerse themselves in activity and private, symbolic rituals. They feel profoundly, but often can't express the depth of their loss.
A man is supposed to be "strong," to support, to cope, and to plan in the aftermath of loss. His own pain must be put away.
Grief doesn't discriminate between gender or culture. Our society has placed clear expectations and requirements upon our roles as men and women. Boys learn quickly what behaviour is considered inappropriate through such statements as, Stand up and take it like a man. Youre the man of the house, and the insidiously cruel "Big boys don't cry.
Male grief tends to have four main characteristics.
1. Moderated feelings
Men have deep feelings but don't express openly, a more readily available feeling is anger. Men deal with their real feelings by redirecting their energies.
2. Cognitive Experience
Men work more with cognitions explaining their grief or with problem-focussed strategies that help them adapt and protect.
3. Problem-Focussed Activity
Men may adapt to loss by practical hands-on finding solutions to problems associated with the loss.
4. Desire for Solitude
Men don't seek support groups. They want to master their own feelings and also reflect the more practical behaviour involved in adapting to a loss.
Societal Demands on Men
Men are expected to be in control of lifes demands and have to submit to the following demands society has placed on them. They're expected to :-
· remain emotionally and physically strong
· always be rational
· don't cry or publicly mourn
· don't ask for support or affection -- be self-sufficient
Emotional... Hm..most men don´t show this to the world..they do it for their own,when they are sad. I think,it isn´t good to put feelings in a cage. It makes depressed when it takes longer time,so why doesn´t men grieve whenever they want to? Good work,really,it let me think over
really nicely done. guess having grown up with a mom and sister all my life i learned to grieve like more women do, but with a bit of the holding it in just a tiny bit. gets weird sometimes as sometimes i don't know what to do.
