This is a rare look into the traditional ways of creating the beautiful masks of the Northwest Coast First Nations. Lelooska has spent a life time creating the masks just as his ancestors have in the past for the use in potlatches. The kwakiutl carvers are known in particular for their transformation or opening masks, which change or open to reveal a second, inner mask. the mask carved in this book is just such a mask, beautiful in its design and its complexity. Each step is illustrated and described to help the carver recreate the mask on his or her own. 96 pages Soft Cover
