Protection Charms...

By Chinga
Kerala - Protection charms
The effect of the mask is not just her perception and looks. Most of them come in the form of gifts from friends and relatives.
Masks help with the positive flow of energy inside the house and keep away evil. These masks signify the essence of life that things may not be the way they look, and that one has to explore deep to find the hidden meanings of life.
