this mask i made portrays the power of comfort. this mask should only be worn when someone has died an unhappy death and their spirit has to be put to rest.
the loved ones of that spirit have to do this ritual and wear the mask to put the spirit to rest.
the black “X” on the mask shows that the spirit is put to rest.
one thing that was challenging about the mask was doing the molding and paper-mâché. but what i’m really proud about is how it came out. it looked more beautiful then i though it would be.
