An outstanding hand carved and painted mask which originated from a 19th century life-size leather costume. The mask measures 20" in length by 9" in height by 6" in width. It is carved from one piece of wood and painted in colors of black, white, red, orange, yellow, and shades of cinnamon brown. It has no restoration and is totally intact with no breaks or cracks. The red lips are pursed as if he is blowing wind. There is a small original hole drilled in the very top for hanging. It is timeless and finely executed piece of art created by the hand of a master artist of the time.
