Q: A friend of mine purchased this mask for me at a flea market. I believe it’s a Balinese mask but I have no idea what kind or what it represents or would be used for. I would like to find out this information if possible. Can you help? Jack, 650
A: You have a double-faced Mexican tourist mask probably made in Guerrero. These carvers often try out new ideas. This time it was big ears and eyes somewhat like a Balinese mask. That’s why you were fooled.
