Primtive Shamanic Mask 31259
Middle Hills, Nepal
Wood, lichen
Early 20th Century
11 in/28 cm 

This mask is carved from very hard wood and displays a nice patina of use. It has an aesthetic much akin to the funerary masks of the Batak and Timor peoples of Indonesia, possibly tapping into an ancient arc of animistic culture.
