Stone Mask

An ancient worm hole forms the eye of this tiny stone mask. Once mud along a shore, aeons of time turned it to stone beneath the sea, then raised it up again, where by chance a piece came loose in the form of a one-eyed mask.

Through out time, people have used ceremonial masks to take on new powers, to make themselves and others believe they have new powers that others do not believe they might otherwise have. In a way, a form of confidence building.

Today, we are more aware of our inner dynamics, and so rely less on ritual and masks.
