    Bravo, what wonderful art. Funny about the masks–those eyes are always wide open. As if something awful was going to happen. It probably doesn’t mean that, but that is unusual.

    As to the last picture, it is a shame that there are so many gaps in what is known about ancient Mexico. So much so, that clear cultural and historical identity are often blurred.
