As well as artworks that explore and address facial hair, grooming, gender roles and maleness, and the significance of facial and pubic hair as a symbol of masculinity. Artists are encouraged to expand on the moustache theme, though works incorporating hair of any kind and its associations or connotations of manliness (or gender more generally) are welcome.
