Turn the Other Cheek

Here is another mask that was "made in Hungary". While there, this concept was large in my mind since it felt like such a part of the Hungarian experience. The double sided face presents two different "cheeks": one set round and the other square ( the "normal" and the stoic). If I can turn the other cheek, perhaps the other side can better withstand whatever is dished out........

I learned a lot about how things work while making and assembling this mask! After I'd made all the parts and fired and finished them, I found that it didn't go together quite as I had planned. That darned clay shrinkage! Eventually, I worked out a solution and I'm pleased with the results.
