Rasta mask provides powerful porch protection: Kenny Be's Yard Arteology

The study of neighbors through their lawn decoration...

Since paleolithic times, Rasta masks have been used as mediators between the living world and the supernatural world of uninvited visitors. The belief/purpose of displaying these masks is to keep time-wasters at bay, while simultaneously attracting loyal friends with strong home-repair skills... The Rasta mask seen in the photo above looks to be a wicker-weave stick construction that has been coated in GlooDoo® brand voodoo glue. The large, blue wide-open eyes suggest that the residents of this home are fearless in asking penetrating questions and demand honest answers. The geometric facial shapes intimates that the household can at times be slightly rigid in its progressiveness. The gaping hole between the nose and lips hint that this mask may actually be on overdecorated umbrella holder.
