Yo. ooi. a-v. Terra-cotta appliqué masks from vases, series of. Faces grotesquely human. Several slightly different moulds were used, and parts were moulded separately so that great variety results. Much hand-tooling on the finished cast made further differences, and there are few duplicates.

Ears large, rather pointed, with big lobes or earrings.
