Tsonokwa Mask


Tsonokwa Mask , Mark Garfield recycled glass

This story mask is made of recycled glass and was carved by west coast artist Mark Garfield. The mask tells the traditional Pacific Northwest legend of Tsonokwa, the wild woman of the woods. It is said that if children foolishly wander into the forest, Tsonokwa will capture them and eat them. Fortunately, she is not considered to be very bright, and usually the children are able to outsmart her and escape.
