This piece looks a bit weird. It looks like it is part human, part antelope. The horns on its head reminds me of the animal that was seen by the people almost every day. The eyes are creepy, because they look like they are staring at you. The mouth looks gaping, but for me it still seems like it has a feeling of happiness. I wonder what this mask is all made of.
