Older, wooden shaman mask, Nepal, 1960-70
Wooden shaman mask from Nepal, particularly full of character. Primitively sculpted with an emphatic facial expression, moustache and beard of animal hair (presumably a yak), but mostly blessed with a splendid use and aging patina! On the back, a wax seal is visible, signifying official admission for export.
