This fascinating ceremonial mask from Papua is made of coffee bean shells and cowrie shells embroidered on a crochet base. Complimented by white and red beans along with Cassowary feathers and fangs, the mask is traditionally worn in dances during ceremonial occasions.
All pieces are traditionally handcrafted which is why no two pieces are the same. Each has a slight difference in size, shape and/or color contributing to the uniqueness and originality of each beautiful piece.
This beautiful piece measures 58 cm in height - inclusive of the stand.
