This is an antique shaman's mask from Nepal carved in hardwood, with a lustrous brown/black patina and holes for attachment. The protruding forehead, oval eyes and open mouth showing teeth combine to create a compelling expression. Height: 26.5 cm, width: 20 cm. It is estimated to date to the early 20th century or earlier and shows encrustation consistent with its age.
