This is not a mask. It is a terracotta sculpture that my son made in high school. It can't be worn. My hubby tried holding it up in front of his face but of course his hands didn't look in place. He had the bright idea to lie down on our driveway and put it over his face. I put the orange paper under his head. The sculpture has a hollow in the back and sort of fitted over hubby's face but it is heavy and rough so I am thankful to him for doing this. I didn't prolong his discomfort - only two takes.

Sounds like you owe your husband for risking his life for you. What if the UPS truck came. They donít look for bodies in the driveway! I think your son should be a dentist. He is very artistic and those teeth look awesome! Congrats on a memorable and excellent composition.

I love your "making of" notes. Your son did a great job on the sculpture and your hubby sounds really nice.
