Busch Gardens, Williamsburg - Opening Day - March 26, 2010 - Photo #4




Busch Gardens Williamsburg is more than just roller coasters. It has many shops that feature gifts from the countries represented ranging from Irish crystal to German cuckoo clocks. They also have extraordinary handcrafted creations by master artisans, like these masks from the Capodimonte Workshop in Italy. It is incredible to watch them paint and decorate them in the shop.  
That's our daughter, bottom left having fun trying out the masks, of course, she went right for the pink one.

I like these photos. I have tried to make masks like this out of wood and ended up with Native American faces that would scare the daylights out of little kids. My grandson would not go into my wood shop, when he was little, because there were two of the masks in it.

I think the photos are excellent.

I love the first mask! It looks like something right out of the Phantom of the Opera.

The mask in that first picture is exquisite! The music adds the perfect touch.

my grandparents took me to Busch Gardens (and several other places) in Florida when I was a kid - We had such a great time!

That one is reminiscent of The Phantom of the Opera.
