    tesser....no and no.
    i would love to see the bird ones you mentioned though...
    i've been on a total bird thing lately actually. drawing
    and painting them for about a month straight now. have you seen
    the cover of the national geographic, i think july or
    june 2001, its on Indochine and it has this hunter
    coming out of the water with a real bird turned mask
    on his head??? birds are strange creatures.
     
  15. Brown, no to you to...:D
    But i agree totaly, birds are very weird creatures,
    responsible for maybe the coolest idea for a film(birds, hitschcock)
    Some of the best scenes in 'Thin red line' include birds also...
    Anyway, i think i can get photos of those masks i'm talking about,
    expect an unexpected and surprise BUMP on this one
