(Great Grandmother)

In every community, in every culture, it is the elders who are the knowledge-keepers.
The elders hold the wisdom and the memories of their people.  
Of their experience.

My smallest mask, I carved with these thoughts in mind.  The back is hollowed in such a way to fit a human head, and the eyes are spaced to allow sight with 
peripheral vision.

Quite literally a mask, this piece invited the wearer to see through the eyes of the elders.
