BALI
Elephant Mask 7
50" high x 12" wide x 10" deep
$1000

This finely crafted mask, with brass and cloth adornments, shows no evidence of age or use and was probably made to be sold.

There is a wide crack on the top of the back that is now stable (see detail).There is a cloth lining glued to the inside of the ears and small remnants of a cloth costume around the base. There is an overall greenish oxidationn on the metal but otherwise the mask is in good condition.
