    very creepy but reallllllllyyyyy interesting im not sure if i would want to participate in some of these ceremonies! great for doing research or just fun

    • lorihuel says:

      Yes, some of the masks are creepy. I suppose that’s good if the mask is intended to banish fear, or to yield off evil spirits. You can learn so much about a culture from the masks they made and how they were used.

  2. Matthew Schaefer says:

    The masks are very cool,though some are really weird but amazing.

    Your blog is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    • lorihuel says:

      Thanks, Matt! I agree. Some of the masks are strange. That’s what’s so interesting about studying masks and studying different cultures. We learn how different we all are, and at the same time, how we are all the same!

    Jay here,

    I think your blog is very cool and smooth. I love the pictures of the masks. They are just so… rugged! They are so interesting and intreaging. Great for learning and studing, but not so good for using… FREAKY!!! Thanks, seeyah!
