Detail Photos

A beautiful old mask from Nepal's fast West. A fine, deep patina has developed with years of use.  The features - with strong angular lines are in contrast to  the curved accent carving of the eyes, brow and mouth.  This last feature serves to create a more gracile form and adds this quality to what would other wise be a very terse and somewhat brutish visage.  But... it remains primitive in the best sense of the word - emotion and a great deal of character are inherent in the artist's effort, which has been distilled to the very fundamental essence - with great economy in form.  In other words the effect of the mask is not the product of superfluous artistic technique. It speaks volumes with its simplicity.
