Linden tree trunk used to make the cactus body was harvested from Robert Motherwell & Helen Frankenthaler’s former Provincetown Studio. Tree fell during a thunderstorm during my fellowship at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown. The mask is carved from Zompantle shipped to Provincetown from San Miguel De Allende, Guanajuato, MX. The mask was carved during a full moon ritual.
