An early shaman's mask probably originating from the western part of the Middle Hills in Nepal. It is covered with an intense black smoke patina, at spots flaking and revealing dark colored wood. There is some old damage to one side and to the tip of the nose but both smooth and worn and covered with the same patina thus showing it's age. The wear to the two holes used to fasten the mask shows it's intense use. Dim.: WxHxD 15x22,5x7cm Weight: 370gr.
