Q: Yet another mystery out of the same batch. This one is large enough for a normal human face. I’ve seen clay masks used in ceremonies before, but it’s rare. Normally, when I see a clay mask, I assume it’s a decorative tourist mask. In this case, I am hesitating, because it seems like it’s not really attractive enough to be a tourist mask. Do you have any idea what it is? Aaron, 1253
A: I agree this will not appeal to most tourists. And don’t rule out Peru or other countries, they make a lot of terracotta masks, as well as Mexico. I have not seen one that looks like this. Maybe someone out there has.
