  1. Ha! This so takes me back to the paper on Middle Eastern Neolithic plastered skulls I wrote during my last year of undergrad.

      I read that some of these masks are found in the same contexts as skulls, and may have been tied/fixed to them, so they may have been closely related to the practice of plastering skulls.
