Please refer to our stock # 737 when inquiring.

“Chewbacca”-like hairy mask made of slunk leather of buffalo (or cattle), used for the local ceremony in Timor.
Very unique and rare hidden mask as can't find its similar reference as personally, except from the former owner who actually once visited Timor and got it from the local people.
Supernaturally powerful and somehow sweet. approx. L 24cm (9.44in), W 20cm (7.87in)
