Menopause Initiation Mask

Menopause Initiation Mask


This piece emerged as a response to studying archetypal masks.  I found myself attracted to the initiation masks used by the Kono people to induct boys into manhood.  I took inspiration from their form and subverted the purpose, creating a feminine initiation mask for women entering menopause.  This is the first in a planned series of feminine initiation masks.
