Description: LOWER SEPIK RIVER DANCE MASK
   
  An impressive Lower Sepik Dance Mask.  Carved from dense hard wood, this classic mask has the
  distinctive features of the region.  With its large angular nose that rejoins the face above the small
  delicate mouth and it's heavyset brow, the mask is strong in form yet holds a certain mystique.
  Large in scale and with rough incisions upon the outer rim, the mask would have been attached to
  an elaborately created costume upon which a dancer would wear in ceremony.  One remaining glass
  trade ring is evident in the right eye and there appears definite signs of on going use throughout.
