Terra-cotta Miniature Mask

Pora-Pora East Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea
PNG TL Tested 100+ years old
Previous Collection: Old German Collection

This is the finest terra-cotta head I have acquired. The face is fantastic, the head projects forward with an enlarged nose with pierced sepum; the eyes are rounded and concave and there is a fine medial ridge from the forehead down to the nose. This piece looks excellent from all angles and the surface wear is superb. One ear is intact the other is worn completely away from ages of handling. A truly rare find.

This head is 3 inches tall and the face extends 4.5 inches
