aaaMystrySolvd-949In Sausalito, CA, there is a mask collector-turned-sculpture by the name of Mort Golub. Though his work is wearable, these masks are made to be collected and displayed. You can read about him and see more of his work at www.mortgolubart.com  Here is a quote from his website…

“My particular interests became centered in the masking traditions of the Himalayas. In the early 1990s I began collecting masks from this area, when great masterpieces were still available. Living with such pieces was very revealing, and led me from painting to making sculpture. Many of the ancient broken and discarded objects that I had been collecting as well became incorporated into my work. I try to preserve original surfaces and patinas that show the passage of time and use as much as possible.”
