So for the background as to how this beautiful thing came into existence, High School freshman me realized that there was a stone mason about a mile from my house, and so I asked some of the employees how much a mask and a necklace would cost, they told me, and I spent the next 2 months saving up. I went back, paid, and a month later, I got these, and they’re honestly some of my most cherished possessions. When I moved countries, I didn’t feel comfortable keeping the mask in checked luggage so I lugged it through security in my backpack and hoped it made it through. The necklace, has a couple chips, but I’ve worn it almost everyday since I got it almost 8 years ago.
I want to see this guy
I want to just see these guys carve everything from MNOG. Imagine having a Turaga head or a Kanohi totem pole just in your room. Amazing!
For sure! Unfortunately the shop shut down, and as Cambodia’s become more industrialized, those small shops aren’t as prevalent as they used to be.
