This is an artistically sculptured Aztec styled mask inlaid with beautiful abalone shells that gives a jeweled appearance in the light, and mounted on a base inlayed on the front and sides with what appears to be malachite. Condition of the mask is very good, but there is an old repair to a crack in the black base and small missing piece of inlay from side of base. Size is 5-1/2” H x 4” W x 2” D; and weighs 7 oz.
