This heavy wooden carving measures about 13 inches tall by 12 inches wide by 10 inches in depth.

It is painted red, white and black over a hand tooled wooden carving. There are no eye holes and the base is carved flat for standing so it may have been used for ceremonies rather than as a mask.

It is in excellent condition except for some scuffing of the paint around the nose. There is also a very minor area of separation at the point where the nose is joined to the face. Otherwise it is in outstanding condition.

This carving is in the Northwest Coast style of carving, however, there are no marks indicating either a maker or country of origin.
