This mask has been vetted as authentic, dating from the late 20th Century.
This mask was vetted by Daniel Mato, author (with Charles Miller III) of Sande, masks and statues from Liberia and Sierra-Leone. The interior has been blackened.
There is a crack on the left side of the bird. The tail end of the left snake has been broken off as is the middle section of the right snake. See details below and views above.
