Half the post keeps disappearing.  There is a reveal photo!
 
Oh- and it came from a free box.

I am thinking the masks may become part of another project and the box is nice for a different display,  maybe old keys?

  1. I like the solid built wood frame part and the free part. I think it might need a paint job and then, well, can’t really get a close look at those masks, but ya never know.
    I just might be replacing them with something else….this was fun.

  3. I’m not much for the masks, but the frame is very cool. I love free!

  4. Yep I would! But my youngest son was born in Korea so that makes me a little different than the average shopper in this situation. They are called Tal masks. They are used in tradtional Satire plays/dances about different social casts. I actually have a frame like this that was given to me from my son’s foster mother. They are all over the tourist shops in Korea. My frame has 5 masks in it, but the frame itself is much cheaper than that one. It is still a shadow box type, but it is a plastic faux wood one. I agree with you, you could have lots of fun with it. Keys is a great idea. I have three kiddos so I would probably just give each one a mask around Lunar New Year or something if it was me. Or keep them to bring to my child’s school for the kids to pass around and look at if they ever do a report or share something about Korean Culture at school.
    I have a couple Korean project on my blog. http://www.karascreativeplace.blogspot.com

  5. Well, no I probably wouldn’t.

    But then things like heads and masks give me the creeps……

    I do like your idea of putting something else in there, though, and keys would be cool for sure……

    Have fun with it!!!

  6. Interesting…not sure I would have bought it but free? sure i’d do that! Maybe paint the frame/box & rough it up?

  7. Great shadow box, and you can’t get better than free! The masks might be used to make a Halloween decoration! Love the idea of keys in the shadow box. I’ll look forward to seeing what you decide to do with all of it. Thank you for being such a kind, encouraging friend on my blog. laurie

  8. It’s an interesting item, however, I’m not too fond of masks, so I know I would not have bought it. But, because it was in the free box, I definitely could think of many uses for the frame/shadow box. Lesa

  9. I had a physical reaction as I scrolled down to the third pic. Not good.
