The Voyage

Li Po folded his poems into paper boats, 
set them out upon the river, uncertain 
they, he, or the world would survive. 

He knew the river merged with something 
grander, but that was itself a beginning, 
not a destination at all. By the time the poems 

arrived, the ink had leached from the sodden 
paper, pictographs became dark eddies, 
whirlpools into which meaning was sucked 

& drowned. The once-words spread like 
shadows over the gathered water, broke into 
waves & set out for distant lands.

Effigymasks can be seen all over the world: worn by a princess at a dignitary ball, a druidic priestess at stonehenge celebrating samhein, a couple attending the masquerade ball at the stanley hotel ('the shining' hotel), a reveler at carnival in venice italy, a theater group in sweden, and party goers around the world! They have been in a movie about the day of the dead, on the runway in a fashion show, in ad campaigns for jose cuervo and malibu rum, in magazines for fashion designers, and in art galleries. When you purchase an effigy mask, you are buying a one of a kind piece of art. There is no mass production there is only the artist, elisha. I love custom masks! Let me create a version for you that's special in every way. I'd love to be the artist for your event!
