These are the two most recent editions to my website. I made these masks in the beginning of May 2004. The photos are a little washed out. Each of these masks are a rich warm brown. The one on the left is embelished with gold mesh and beads. The mask on the right is embelished with gold mesh, ribbon, and blue nail enamel.
