Despite its appearance and patina, we believe this mask was probably made to be sold.

BEDU MASK 17
46" high x 20" wide x 4" deep
There is a repaired split from top to bottom of this mask (see details below). Unlike the other Bedu masks, the box-like support on the back is made of added-on pieces of wood, not carved out of the same piece.
