Dear Art Educators,

I have heard from Mohan Daniel from Sri Lanka. He has responded to one of
our Getty posts about the site Art Sri Lanka:
I have this site linked on Oriental-Asian Art:

Art Sri Lanka - Excellent site on art history, Buddhist art
etc. Click on Masks - lots of images - types and meanings.
Preview the Art Today - I viewed some of the 43 Group - to see how you can
use this contemporary art with your students. I recommend the non-flash
version - but you can decide. Find out more about this educational site.
He also sent me a very thorough write up about the site (which I have
linked as well):
I will feature this site on Incredible Art Department in January when I do
more Oriental sites. I spent about another hour on the site today. I have
not looked at every image.

From Mohan Daniel:

be most welcome.

Please take the time to post your reviews (whenever you do use the site) and
I will compile and send to Mohan.

saved them and can forward them to you (ask OFF LIST It

them again and select the best. We found lots! My page will just be a
functional page - nothing fancy. Here is one link to world masks to get you
