August is here and I am really excited by the cross traing art topic for the month which is mask making. I have always been fascinated by masks of all kinds and have a collection in different places around the house. Here is one that is very special. It is a batik decorated one from Java. Three weeks after we visited there Mt Merapi erupted and the workshop and showroom where this came from was totally destroyed. I wonder what sort of mask I should create.
