6.5W. x 8.25H. inches

Wood, oil paint, linen cloth,  gypsum and glass eyes.

Observations:  This mask is unusual in that it has been entirely brush painted.  All  masks of this type are now air-brushed, which is much faster.  Eye-lashes have been hand-made from cow hair found around the ankles instead of commercially made eyelashes now being used.  This was the original technique.  Character represents a wealthy Spaniard during the Colonial era.
