A beautiful example of the Humla dance masks from far West Nepal.  The Humla people live in a majestic but hard, high altitude environment.  The area is a cross roads of ancient cultural paths and the Buddhist and Hindu influence melds with local folk religions revering ancestors and local deities.  This Humla style of  Himalayan mask is very distinctive and is probably one of the most readily recognizable genres of Nepal masks.
