(3rd Place – Sculpture)
School: Juneau-Douglas High School
In English class, we studied the plays of Ancient Greece. Actors would wear the masks so the audience, from far away, could see which character was in the scene at that moment. The masks were exaggerated to show the expression of the character. My mask is exaggerated to show a state of shock and confusion of the character because my favorite part of the ancient greek plays were the plot twists that left everyone shocked. It is modeled after my own expression of shock that I made in a mirror. I formed the clay slab upon my own face so it would fit.
