Even in contemporary cities, open burning takes place. The burning of vegetative, organic and man-made wastes churn out cubic meters of smoke which pollute our air and disrupt our ease of breathing, potentially causing us to choke, suffocate or wheeze in the toxic combination of noxious gases and smog.
This hand-held ornament slips over the nose and mouth area to provide a filter for the smoke and pollutants. The front of the mask contains rosemary, allowing the user to crush it with his fingertips to release its scent which masks the smell of smoke; providing the user the chance to breathe a little easier as he/she walks away from the source of the pollution.
