A large mask made from a naturally shaped piece of root wood. It stems from probably the western part of the Middle Hills. It is covered with a dark smoke patina, at parts flaky. The holes to fasten it show wear from use and are elongated, not round. This and the fact that the nose on the inside is deepened show that it is a mask to wear and not a wall hung protector. Dim.: WxDxH39x21x9,5cm. Weight: 850gr
