Brendan is into art, surreal and imaginative. So this mask from the market in Chichicastenango, Guatemala is the perfect gift.
200 Q was the final price, down from 300 Q (the equivalent of $40). Probably too much but bargaining is commonplace. I got my photo thrown in so maybe it is a good deal.
I do not like to photograph people who are just living their life in their manner and traditions. Of course I could ask permission but….
Brendan loved the mask, scratches and all. He hung it up on his bedroom wall at his new apartment. Brendan’s art available in his book on Amazon.
