This old mask shows the great Hindu god, Shiva.  The representation has typical iconographic details such as blue hued skin, hair bundled into a top knot in the manner of a sadhu (Hindu ascetic yogi), and the open third eye in the center of the forehead. The soft, child like features in a cherubic style are typical of the way Hindu deities were portrayed in popular devotional art from the early years of the 20th century. Condition is good with obvious loss of pigments and an old repair to the right ear as might be expected in old, well used festival masks.
