Love this mask. I'm a big fan of the movie "creature of the black lagoon", and this mask reminds me of the creature character. It's so different. Thank you so much!

Got this piece as a gift! I was glad I did. The person really enjoyed it...The mask was really well made and so cool. The shop owners are also easy to talk too. They shipped it really fast too. Would totally buy from this seller again.

About

Jevgenija and her`s masks

Yevgeniya Kilupe (born in 1938), the creator of amazing authentic papier mache masks has never been a professional artist. Although she was very keen on drawing during her childhood, she had to earn living for her family all her adult life doing various jobs in the factories of Rezekne (a town in Eastern Latvia). Only after retirement Yevgeniya decided to take up papier mache - just to make some extra money besides her pension.

The talent of Yevgeniya was discovered by Linda Lūse -owner of the art gallery ISTABA while she was visiting one of the marketplaces in Latgale where Yevgeniya was selling her masks. Linda Lūse immediately invited Yevgeniya to bring her works to Riga. Soon after, in December of 2010, was opened a triumphant exhibition of Yevgeniya’s masks. That was a beginning of friendship between Yevgeniya and Linda Lūse which still continues -Linda with her gallery helps Yevgeniya to popularize and sell her masks in Latvia and in abroad through to Etsy shop

Yevgeniya has carefully studied nature to make each image fascinatingly vivid. An occasional witch face or another fairytale character appear among the masks of animals.

Yevgeniya's molding and painting skills are so convincing that it is even hard to tell they are handcrafted. Only in some touching details she gives us a clue of the uniqueness of her works - each of them thoroughly handmade with heart and soul, filled with her love for Nature, Life and God.
