: Hi Rich and Elaine,
: It's a "Great" job that you have done on the Mask page. I am wondering if you know the Meaning of the "Evil Patriot" mask or what it is a symbol of.
>>Thanks, Ayesha! According to the book which Eric uses as a reference (and which Chris has kindly tracked down for us!),
the Pacific Eskimo and Aleut masks included a type with high foreheads which may represent the pointed-head evil spirits of the region. We assume this to be what Eric is representing, but we'll ask him exactly what he intended as soon as we can.
: I love the new picture of Eric. He looks as though he has gone through a spiritual re-birth. It makes me happy to know his life is better now.
>> Glad you're enjoying it. I'm sure Eric Schweig would also be pleased.
