This evening I began to cut out the shape of the mask a bit closer. I decided to do this before drilling the holes for the eyes. Still a lot of wood has to be removed but once more a mask begins to get it’s shape. I like the process of the creation of such a mask. It’s like it gets his own life. I already know how the shape of the nose will look like in the end. How the chin will stretch forward. That is the point when I silently hope I will be able to create the exact face I see when closing my eyes. Exciting.
