I Have No Idea

Manaus, Brazil ~ April 25, 2007

I sometimes hope that every animal image with a long nose is a tapir, but it's not. The teeth are clearly opossum-like. These two carved animal heads are masks. The ecru-colored fibrous fabric shrouds the wearer. The mask on the right is a crocodilian of some sort, and to the right of that are carved wood fish and a bird. The piranhas at the bottom are the real thing, just dried out.

That would be one weird hybrid tapir. Probably harder to get backers to help save them. Ooooo.

Interesting looking carvings... but I wouldn't want one on my walls. ;-)
