This piece originates in Eastern Nepal, which is notable because stylistically it might seem more a kin to masks from Nepal's mid-west.  It has appealing surface patination with contrasting light and dark surface patches.  It also once had a moustache and beard, but now all that's left is the remnants of the pitch adhesive.  The mask has a very convex shape, with the sides of the mask sweeping around the wearer's face.   In short a fine, relatively minimalist piece, with desirable crusty surface patina.
