Handmade clay faces on canvas – I moulded the faces from clay!
W28cm x L34.5cm
Mask, cloth faces, and the likes, have been used all over the world in various cultures and traditions for coming of age ceremonies, ritual blessings, receiving messages from the Ancestors, War masks, and so much more!
Spirits Love vessels, especially when a vessel has a face (our own body being the most Intelligent of vessels for our own spirit/s) it allow them to anchored themselves, communicate with us, and gives them a home to take up residence in if they should come and visit.
This isn’t just art on canvas but, like traditional masks, this is a vessel in which The [honourable] Ancestors take up residence in – designed for The Ancestors who assist in bringing wealth into the home.
