Inspiration ... South Asian Influence

When I visit South Asian countries, I like searching for home deco. But you know, we only have tiny space in HK, which means by no chance I can take some huge stuff back home. Therefore, I usually search for some tiny special pieces.
Mask is a symbolic item from Sri Lanka. Traditional mask is craved from light Balsa (some kind of wood), which is for dancing rituals. Plus, different masks represents different evils/ goddess, which I obviously have no idea the story behind the masks. Anyway, now, these kind of masks are sold on the street as touristic souvenirs. That's why I got one of it.
My boyfriend told me the god of this mask protect the family from bad mouthing.
Little elephant from Sri Lanka as well
