Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0789424541, Hardcover)

Here are some of the most spectacular masks from the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art: a fierce samurai mask, a toothy Nigerian mask, an eerie skull mask from Papua New Guinea, a puffy-cheeked pre-Columbian mask, and a German helmet from the early 16th century. Each mask pops out of the book and can be worn and re-inserted onto the page for storage. Accompanying each mask, which are reproduced here with exceptional fidelity, is rich informative text which places these works of art into their larger historical and cultural contexts.

Presents a variety of masks from the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Each mask can be popped out of the book, worn, and returned to the book.
