The Art Museum : the masks + bags

Masks from different tribes of the Pacific NW Coast and Arctic.

This one is the one that Lucas made from the Masks book we’ve been using.  It’s a mask from the Yup’ik Tribe from 1900.  Made of wood, feathers, paint and sinew.

I also found these bags and boxes so beautiful.  Something I would love to have at home, wouldn’t you?

Just beautiful!
