Detail Photos

This mask is distinguished by its metal dental work - a feature that is seen with some regularity in middle hills masks.  The style is kind of a "bridge" for the top front teeth.  The metal is Aluminum, secured with nails. The mask has good patina considering it is probably in the 50 - 70 year range.  This one is also somewhat menacing in overall appearance - with its leering grin, and fairly crude carving. Originated with the Gurung people.
