Wacky Witch Doctor

Wacky Witch Doctor Mask
This is the wacky witch doctor. I'm not too sure what it is that makes him wacky now I look at it again. He's probably got a really crazy sense of humour or something. Of course being a witch doctor also means that he's an expert in scaring away evil spirits and stuff like that. Not to mention an expert in crazy looking eyes and fiendish grimaces.

Apparently witch doctor is a european term and is not really meant to be used for african spiritual healers. This sort of mask would have been worn by a shaman, but sometimes you just have to go with the more popular usage. Especially when you only realise afterwards.

Lots of witch doctor stuff at the Doodle Dojo store.
