Thanks for posting those pictures. I thought I would pick up that carving days ago, but there's been lots of distractions this week. To answer your question, we lived in Subic Bay in the Phlippines for a number of years in the late 1960's. Pretty far removed from Woodstock, sort of the other end of the spectrum! One good thing was that we got to travel quite a bit; we were on our way to visit some famous rice terraces when we found those masks, for example. That whole area was quite different fourty years ago, I've gone back dozens of times in the last couple of decades but the world is much smaller now and even a remote island like Koh Pha Nga (where the movie "The Beach" was set) has a Seven-11 and Internet cafes! Anyway, I'll try to pick up the mask and post some pic soon, really appreciate the advice and the dialog, thanks, Chuck
