This is a fabulous web page. I love oh JOy Joy (Adult cartoon).
Anyway my son(7) did a replica of this mask out of plaster gauze and
I cannot beam enough!! I think everyone should pick at least one
Native American Artist or Tribe and do a lesson on them. Okay This
is a Challenge!!!! Send in your ideas!!!! I hope everyone responds.
I have given adequate web links the past 2 months so all those in
I thought so....... Let the race begin.
My new love I just adore and has simply given me the drive to paint
large again is this artist:
Mario Martinez (I know sounds Mexican isn't that great!)Did someone
say Beckman?

I hope to flood Getty with Native American/South American Modern
Artist's, so maybe we will be of more Value!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NMAI Conexus / Masks

19 March 1997, 11:28 am -
As in so many masks, the walrus/caribou mask on the left has a divided countenance -- in this case between an important land animal and a sea mammal. It was purchased in the 1920's by George Gustav Heye, the founder of the Museum of the American Indian in New York City. The mask on the right is Keglunruak Kegginaqaq, wolf mask. Not much is known about these masks except that they are striking!
