The Weekly Photo Challenge is Creepy.
There are some masks, clowns, baby dolls, and critters that really creep me out in Nicaragua.
“I wish everyday could be Halloween. We could all wear masks all the time. Then we could walk around and get to know each other before we got to see what we looked like under the masks.” ~ R.J. Palacio
Masks fascinate me and make me happy. They are reflections of unique cultures, worn like bridges from the outer phenomenal world to the inner person. Embossed with bold colors and expressions, masks evoke many reactions to the beholder, but for me, they always make me smile in wonder. Masks are the poetry of a culture, the exquisite spirits of the past, and entertaining portrayals of our inner emotions.
Enjoy the masks of Nicaragua. I hope they make you smile. 🙂
