This mask was purchased at the estate sale of a NYC collector of tribal arts. There is no COA but based on certain features this could be the real thing or a very fine replica. The portraiture is fine and deliberate with attention to the width of the brow, the arch of the nose, the fullness of the mouth and the slope of the forehead. The holes are where they should be and appear to have bi conical holes - a good sign indicating ages old craftsmanship. The lapidary knew his craft. The mask is finely carved in deep green (almost black) jade (?) with some small patches of lighter green. A straight lighter green vein runs vertically down the left side of the mask face from the top of the forehead through the left eye, curving around the left nostril and over the top left lip. On the right side of the mask an organic seam in the stone runs like a scar from the inner right eye curving around the right cheekbone back up to the top of the right ear. Condition: excellent. There are earthly deposits - those deposits that form on the stone over many years - that could not be dislodged despite persistent careful dusting with a soft brush. size: H 3.5”x W2.75” x D1.75” A find for serious collectors. Please feel free to send questions and ask for additional photos. No reserve. Happy bidding! Shipped with USPS First Class Package. Material: Stone
