Despite its appearance, this mask shows no evidence of age or use and was probably made to be sold.

$300
Mali

This object has subtle painted designs, but the surface is flakey and fragile. It stands, as when photographed, but is not stable in that position. There are no eye openings so it could not have intended as a mask form, but possibly a headdress.
