Description

This mask comes from western Nepal and was made around 1950 from one piece of wood. The forehead and nose have been carved sculpturally. The eyes are perforated and the mouth has been incised very precisely, showing nine teeth each on the top and bottom. There is one hole on each side at eye-level for attaching a string to wear the mask. The mask probably served a ritual function for a Nepalese tribe.

The mask shows age-related traces of wear and manufacturing faults on both the front and back. The measurements are 25.5 x 13 x approx. 6 cm (height x width x depth).
