1st grade Animal Masks

Art can also be used for celebrations and special occasions.  Art made for those purposes is called: ceremonial.

Masks are ceremonial artworks.  Masks can change the way people look, act, speak, and feel.  Often, masks are used to celebrate something special.  What animals are these masks celebrating?  Do these masks have symmetry?
