As most of you know in the Sepik River basin wooden masks are primarily attached to larger cane and fiber dance costumes—sometimes two masks, one above another, on large costumes. The present mask comes from such a dance costume, probably from the Sawos culture of the Sepik Plains north of the Middle Sepik River. The mask has a pronounced nose, deep set eyes and layers of pigments showing repeated ceremonial uses over the decades. The mask comes from the collection of Emil Storrer, dates to the early 20th century, is 18-1/4" (46.4cm) in height and sells for $4800. Questions?
