    the first and third ones were made by a famous mask maker in Michoacan, Mexico. The second one i bought at a yard sale years ago, and i don't know where it's from. i think it might be south pacific or hawaiian. does anyone know?

      The one in the middle is also from Mexico, possibly Michoacán.

      the green mask is a more recent one, but both it and the red one were made by Don Antonio in Uruapan, Michoacan. He's a very well-known and talented maskmaker. the red one is supposedly made w/ all natural paints made from insects, plant material and minerals using ancient Purempecha techniques.
