This is a Sri Lankan devil dancer’s mask. The dancer comes to help if you’re suffering from fever. Would cure me, I think.
And you’ve all been going to Sam Cabot’s website to check out not just the daily masks, but the stories Carlos and I have been posting about people, places, and phenomena related to SKIN OF THE WOLF, right? We talk about therianthropy, the New England Vampire Panic of 1892, and how Native Americans feel about the 4th of July. Among other cool things.
