Neuberger Museum

4th Grade Explores African Art - By Casey J., Brendan G.
This is a mask. It was used for ceremonies, and to scare people and animals away. 
It's also a combination of animals. For example, the front horns are from a warthog, 
and the teeth are from an alligator. It's very cool.

We looked at a mask of a bird in a nest, and another of a baboon in the left corner. 
We did not get to wear it or touch it, but we visualized it. It was very cool.

  1. I received an email from Linda, who helped coordinate the trip:

    " The children were wonderful - attentive and engaged - and the docents all enjoyed doing the tours. "

    Bravo, Purchase 4th graders!
