"Nice grouping of small masks."

My brother loves the details of the masks and they will go with his collection. They are actually hand size and just right for a mantle or to fill in a small space, even place them in a shadow box.

"Love the bird"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

this mask has a bird looking backwards. This shows that our past must be learned to forward. I totally believe we should review and learn from our past at least who we are. I am studying my genealogy and this fits perfectly in my office.
