Despite its appearance and patina, we believe this mask was probably made to be sold.
BEDU MASK 23
78" high x 24.5" wide x 5" deep
This unusual mask has a fragile, flaky surface. It has survived as is for 20+ years, but could lose more flakes. There are two cracks at the very top, one repaired, one stapled (see detail below).
