Detail:view from the back
This mask from the Terai region of southern Nepal, shows the use of fine hardwood, and heavy construction typical of the region. It is uncertain what grouping this mask belongs to, though it is associated with another mask in our collection featuring a spiky crown. The round eyes and slit eye-openings underneath are typical freatures of masks from this region.
