The Brownies: Chapter 16
"Brownies are helpful little men of a brownish hue, which gives them their name. It is their habit to visit Scottish farms and, while the household sleeps, to perform domestic chores. One of the tales by the Grimms deals with the same subject"
I've always thought of brownies as being a little grumpy. So this mask is both grumpy and elfin, with a little green thread thrown in as a reference to the best known of brownies- the ones that frequented a certain shoemaker's workshop.
