Detail Photos

A rustic middle hills mask that embodies nicely the tribal aesthetic of the sub-himalayan area of Nepal. Minimalist styling with animal fur on the chin and forehead, and indications in the form of old nails that the upper lip and eyebrow areas once had similar animal hide facial hair. There is also a metal piece forming a third-eye and old metal teeth, many only partially present now. Nice patination has developed and the distinctive scent of a remote Himalayan village house hold. A great, and above all genuine animist mask from Nepal.

Condition is good, but there are cracks in the wood in the chin area... these  "character marks" clearly visible in one of the accompanying detail photos.
