Detail Photos

An antique mask from Nepal's mid-western middle hills. The mask is from the Gurung tribe and exhibits a form that could be called "classic mid-west middle hills".  A realistic form that is simultaneously primitive.  Realistic in the overall shape of the face, nose and ears, as well as some facial hair - including beard, moustache remnants and eyebrows, but primitive in the sense that there is no over embellishment of the eyes nor mouth.  The mask is very old, and has evolved a nice patina.  There is a hole in the cheek that has been worn smooth with rounded edges and a bit of loss on the right eye.    A top notch piece for collectors searching for a middle hills mask the incorporates classic middle hills styling.
