Faces And Masks - Looking Back At You

It is interesting how we present ourselves to the world.

The mask above is found on a home in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

(Please note that I am continuing to look at posts 
from a couple of years ago that current readers may have missed
 and this post was originally done in January of 2011,
with several additions we have run across since then.)

If our homes are an extension of ourselves...

...would it not follow that a mask or face at the entrance of our home...

...has much to say not only about ourselves
 but is a message to the person entering our home?

This beautiful collection above was found in Washington State.

A face on a tree in Virginia.

The bronze above we found at the University of Guanajuato
in Guanajuato, Guanajuato.

These next five photos come from the entrance to the home and studio
 of Maria Eggleston in Mulege, Baja California Sur.

These stone faces are used to train a bougainvillea vine over the wall.

To see more of Maria's home, studio, garden and art please see my posts:

And lastly these were found on a wall
 in an art gallery in Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico.
