Rare, circa early to mid 20th century carved wooden mask designed to be placed on or above a door to ward off evil spirits, in the animist Taoist tradition. This was made by a minority ethnic group in Southern China (Miao or Tujia) and is similar in style to Nuo masks although this was never meant to be worn. H: 42.5cm/16.8 in and W: 29cm/11.5in. This is a very impressive piece with a fierce demeanor. The nose is damaged, a minor crack and the odd bug hole, here and there.

One of kind, single supplementary weft embroidered panel, L: 4.63m/14.2ft and W: 36.5cm/13.8in, from the Tujia ethnic group in Guizhou, Southwest China. Its function is a bit of mystery so it being a sling wrap around baby carrier is my best guess. Originally I thought it might be a traditional wedding blanket that would be cut and sewn with three panels together but there is no border pattern woven into this piece as is typical...
