LARGE EXPRESSIVE YANGORU WOOD PLANK-LIKE YAM MASK
Period/Date: 1940's possibly older
Materials: Hardwood, fiber, natural pigments
Description: This especially large impressive mask has beautiful symmetry and features a lovely expressive face. Yam masks seldom come any larger than this. Its surface is overall dark with an encrusted patina. The ears and septum are pierced. It is presented on a custom wood and stainless steel base with etched plaque on the bottom. Although the presentation is very handsome, Michael has stopped doing this kind of base because it was cost prohibitive at $300 each.
Dimensions: Height: 29.5" (75 cm), Width 9" (23 cm)
