Informative "Masks Around the World" site (multicultural)
- Dear Art Educators,
I followed a link on Andy DiConti's site to "Masks Around the World"
"An on-line shop for mask collectors and folk art lovers featuring tribal
masks from Africa, India, the Himalayas, Asia, China, Korea, Java, Bali, New
Guinea, Northwest Coast America, Mexico, Guatemala, the Caribbean, and
Native America. Also included are masks for Halloween, Party, Drama, Art,
Those of you planning multicultural units may want to take a look this
summer. There is also a link to a book about the collection for only around
$10.00. There are many wonderful images on the site. I will not be linking
this site up (It is a commercial site) - so take a peak. This is a great
site for a collection of images for a PowerPoint to get you started.
I believe that Bob Ibold (owner of the collection) wants you to use these
for educational purposes (in class use). Do check is you plan to post images
on your sites, though.
I will work on getting some "masks around the world" links on IAD - as that
is a frequent search topic. Many of the sites I found last summer are no
