A large mask from the Middle Hills of Nepal, possibly Magar or Gurung, mid 20th C. Under the nose and on the chin and on the forehead pieces of leather are applied. Once this would have been animal hide with lavish hair adding to the expression of the mask. Over the years nothing off the hair has survived except for a few traces. On the inside there's an old local repair visible where the wood on the top has broken, likely caused by falling. Dim.:19x31x10cm. Weight:635gr.
