The Carter Mullen Mexican Mask Collection

My brother, Carter Mullen, assembled a collection of Mexican Masks over three decades.  It was a diverse, colorful and authentic collection, most of which were "danced" - worn in flamboyant ceremonies, processions and guarded rituals.  Sadly Carter left his collection behind.  But he would be very proud to know that I found a home for his masks at the Museo de Las Americas in Denver, Colorado.  Below is a book I had made for my Dad's, Bob Mullen, 91st birthday (today) which showcases just some of Carter's masks.  Enjoy!
