7 l4 L5 u/ V6 T6 s2 R7 P) P* ^9 kHere is the meaning.  Curtains are being used   as a symbolic reference to the man's facial expression, which mask his true feelings.   The man's face therefore, has been drawn,  just as  curtains are "drawn" when they are close, allowing no light in.  So with the man's face,  he allows no light either. His feelings,  thoughts, intentions  and so forth are close over by the "drawn curtains" or "closed curtains" of his face.

; g, m# n( v. i5 C5 _( |  To say the face was "drawn" is to say that it was closed, and unreadable.  To say that the curtains were "real" is to say that no knowledge at all could be obtained about the man; because those curtains, which were the man's face,  really were closed.

" ]5 \8 G1 T2 P0 T$ N    I know this very well.  My face used to be an expressionless mask.  People would ask if I was excited about one thing or the other, and I would say, "Oh Yes! Really!". Then they would say;

   I changed that over time however.   The mind can draw real "curtains" over a face, and no one can see beyond those "curtains". Such is the power of the human mind to create its own Prison.2 F  l1 Y* {0 A) z1 b
