Since the work is essentially a biopsy into the heart of masculinity that I have taken a personal perspective on and assumed that the essential building block of male behaviour is formulated around your primary role-model: your father. From that relationship, in ever concentric circles that emanate from there and embraces cultural and social contexts, geography of an emotional and physical nature, the preconditioning that shapes masculinity, is fraught. The reference points for the work is the anthropological model.
