Woven Mask

Abelam, Sepik Plains, Papua New Guinea
Early 20th Century

Another beautiful ‘Baba’ woven mask. This example has its original wooden adornment still attached. The two large ‘eyes’ make for an impressive image. The tight weave shows that this is an early well made example. The original pigments are still intact.

This mask stands 16 inches in height.
