Well, in fairness, so does the Spirit of Detroit statue on which the mask is based.

It’s really a cool concept: The statue is literally raising the city, which be read as a metaphor for how the people of Detroit’s spirit will lift it from its current economic catastrophe or how the Red Wings do the same for those people.

The mask is from Bishop Designs, whose work can be found here.
