Here’s another one. A lot of work goes into making the masks which are all done by hand.

Novice Don on the left with Ajahn Ratana (in the middle). Ajahn Ratana is a very nice Cambodian monk who works very hard for the school. I’m not sure how long he’ll stay as he plans to study for an M.A. in the future.
