Don’t worry about this “mask”

Q:  Some abnormal events have occurred since bringing my mask home. Would like to know the history of this mask as soon as possible. Please…  Spencer, 1291

A:  You should be okay. It’s not a real mask. And remember that masks have spiritual power only in the culture that uses them. Carvings like this are meant to be sold at airports and tourist destinations. I get a lot of pictures of these souvenirs. Most of the new owners think they have bought a “mask” that has been used in a ceremony and might be worth some money. Of course, my answer usually disappoints them. I hope you are pleased instead.  D
