In Year 5 we have started looking at the ancient Maya civilisation. This week we have designed and made our own Mayan masks. The Maya used masks for celebrations, rituals and even in tombs!
We looked at one of the most famous Mayan masks. It was found in the royal tomb of Pakal the Great. It is mosaic made from jade.
We used this mask as our template made our masks using mosaics of shiny and animal print paper.
