Ketut explained to me that it was important to know the character of the mask I was carving. Since I was not as familiar with the Balinese pantheon I decided to switch to Western themes where I was more conversant with their character and identity. This seemed to work and I was able to carve this Comedy mask much faster than the previous masks. Also carved in Pulai wood, I chose to leave this one unfinished as an example to my students.
