A wayang topeng mask with age, ca. 1920-1930, carved from light wood. It is called wayang topeng, after the traditional dance performances based on the Mahabharata, Ramayana or stories on the hero Panji. Inside there are old iron nails that originally fastened a piece of cloth that was held between the teeth to keep the mask in front of the face. There's slight damage to the rim due to old (inactive) insect eating. Dim.: WxHxD 14x18,5x14cm.
