We picked a couple of masks and as we were ready to go, the artist Mr Vishwanath K. Shetgaonkar came in and he offered to show us all his work, from embossing on silver, brass, copper, and papier machie items. He also offered us tea and biscuits as he explained his work, his exhibition in Panjim, and all around India, and that he is an awarded artist.
I think visiting his house was one of the most original moments during my time in Goa--I just wish we could take more masks. It's worth visiting!
