    There are a pair of what I"m guessing are Mary, Jesus and Joseph architectural elements. At least they're pretending to be. I'm trying to figure out if they're as old as they want to be, old copies, or just some fakes. They have what alleges to be woodworm damage too. The polyhchromed one doesn't even pretend; it's painted on the back too and carved with a letter A. Everything shown cost $10, so I'm not in too deep - probably worth more than that as modern decorative copies.

    The mask looks like a dancer's Tiger mask from Guerrero, Mexico, to me. No idea concerning the age

    Probably not antique, but definitely hand made. It's the plain wooden ones I was trying to figure out.
