That's what this is in case you were wondering. And don't feel bad if you couldn't figure it out without this title. I would've never figured it out myself if G hadn't told me. The only reason being was because when I first saw it he wasn't holding it like you see here. Had he done that I would have picked up on it right away. Even if it is too small for anyone that I know.
G handed it to me as if it was a small plate. That's why I was initially dumbfounded. The very first thing he told me was that I needed to put it in my office. At first I thought it was some type of paper weight of sorts. It never dawned on me to hold it up like you see here. Even with the holes in it. But he was quick to advise me that it indeed was a mask as he saw me struggling to identify it.
What came to mind when I saw this was the mug that Mariah made for me in the third grade. The same one that I still have sitting in my office. The same one that I'm pretty certain probably couldn't contain liquid if you tried to put some in it but I certainly wasn't going to try for fear of ruining it. The same one that is now my official pen holder.
This too was made out the similar ceramic that Mariah used on her project. I like that they're doing things like that at those young ages. They continue to be keepsakes that can be treasured for years and years. I wish they would have done something like that when I was that age. It would be cool to see one of my third and/or fourth grade projects still sitting in my folks' place. I guess I'll just have to settle for those photo albums they have instead.
I still don't know exactly how I'll utilize this latest G artifact. It would be nice if I could hang it up like an actual mask. Unfortunately, there's just no way to display it like that with as small as it is. I would have to hang it through the two eye holes. That just wouldn't look quite right. It would have almost a voodoo type appearance to it. As if I was saying I wanted to put someone's eyes out. Although some days I do rather feel like that. Maybe I've found a way to utilize it afterall.
