Mask Item 375

Price Upon Request

6 W. x 7.75 H. inches

Wood and oil paint.  Tongue appears to be made of leather. 

3rd Quarter 20th Century.

Notes:  Mask represents the alligator for the Dance of the Costenos or coastal persons.  Paint has deteriorated along the edges perhaps due to mishandling between events.  For this reason it is considerably less expensive than it would be for its age and overall condition and presence.

Provenance provided to buyer.
