The Gold Mask Part I
I bought this mask years ago at the Wild Thyme cafe in Warburton, Victoria. They always used to have a lot of local art on display (and I think they still probably do), and this mask just tempted me too much, so I bought it. Supporting local artists and all of that - surprisingly rewarding! I loved the colour, the fit, everything. It's not all that practical, really, when you think about it. But almost all art isn't - it's just the aesthetic functionality of it that works. Plus it was less creepy than the Green Man mask they had. That one gave me the shivers for some reason.
