Almost Halloween!



Another mask, this time from craftswork displayed as part of a Latin American festival, held at Arizona Historical Museum yesterday.

Wow! That's impressive. I love masks. I have a collection of them from Togo, West Africa, from when I was in the Peace Corps (1996-98). They're all over the walls in my bathroom.

Well, I prefer this one. It seems to send kisses to everyone who looks at it :)

Thanks for visiting guys! I wish I knew more about the significance of this sort of twin faced mask. Would be interesting to know. I agree, does make you want to play with making your own. Interesting comment,Ham.. I think I read somewhere Picasso was inspired by African art (though these are Mexican of course). Marie, maybe you could post some photos of your masks sometime?
