Earlier than mid century - maybe early century. Unusual & singular abstract face mask.11 1/2" x 8" x 5. A tremendous abstraction of face with an outstanding patina of enamel paint deep green + white. Undoubtedly used in performance, for sure face worn as part of a costume. Multiple holes cresting the crown were once embellished with most probably, feathers and must have been awe inspiring. Aged medium weight porous wood - unmistakeable antiquity. SEE IMAGES Mask is old and used - not meant for sale or made for sale. Came from the estate of a Belgian artist - I acquired from Belgium in 2002.
