I need a happy mask

My life is in crisis. I need a happy mask.

 

This cut-paper collage is for Stephanie's 2-from-1 swap: this is is how it looks before being cut down the middle of the mask to make two postcards.

 

The wooden mask is from the Ogoni people of Nigeria, roughly turn of the 20th century. The background is a Thai paper with blue inclusions. On top of that is white oil paint in a stenciled design. On top of that are the black-and-gold horizontal bits I made by cutting up a picture of a colloidal suspension (unknown source—some science journal). On top of that are two rubber stamps: a spiral and an Om.

 

You see, I can do layers! =laugh=
