Haitian masks are not expensive

Besides being known as a beautiful, colonial beach side town, Jacmel is one of the leading producers of papier-mâché in all of Haiti. In fact, this dazzling town of about 40,000 residents is famous for its arts and has dozens of studios and shops where papier-mâché is made, sold and celebrated especially during Haiti’s Carnival, which is pre-Lenten and was introduced to the African slaves who worked in cane fields and sugar factories many years ago. Now would be a good time to visit Jacmel.  Bob,1287  B+
