Guest Book
From the 17th/18th century, this carved wood Himalayan shaman mask shows the wear of many years of use in tribal rituals. The primitive piece is the work of the Rai people from the middle hills of Nepal, and depicts an ancient deity or ancestor. The fur most likely was replaced several times during its years of use. The piece is in very good condition. Dimensions: height 11" (28 cm), width 8" (20 cm).
