Description

The island of Timor gave rise to a distinctive tradition of dance masks whose precise origins and significance remain uncertain. Portraying both male and female ancestors, they were worn by men during dances and other ceremonies, including celebrations of victory in war.

When in use, the masks were typically worn with a headdress or a hood that covered the head, further concealing the dancer's identity. Wood examples such as that seen in this deeply patinated replica were preserved and reused many times.

An ideal statement piece to hang on a wall or rest on the mantel or desk, this artwork will enliven any space.

Hand carved using palm wood.

Size: approx. 1m tall.

Due to artisanal nature, mask designs may vary.


Shipping from multiple locations may incur additional charges. Delivery method is selected in checkout. Up to 12 days delivery time.
