TURTLE
Yam Mask 17
11" high x 8.5" wide x 3.5" deep
$200

Provenence:  Nichols Gallery,  Boston

Despite its appearance we believe this mask was made to be sold.

Made from an overmodelled (with clay) tortoise shell, fiber, shells and pigment. There is some loss of cowrie shells, two on the top and two from the bottom right.
