Description: Resembling a creature such as a fruit bat, this is a very rare and unique mask. Carved
  from dense hard wood, this piece has a stylized quality to it. With cowrie shells for eyes
  and extended ears, the mask's only incisions is through the nose and top section of the
  head upon which it is hung. A dense black resin coats the entire piece, however there
  is evidence of various other layers of resin beneath.
