    I recently picked up this wall hanging because it was different BUT I didn't realize I could not figure out where it's from or even how old it is. I was told that it was an Aztec mask by the seller. Does anyone have knowledge of this. I would surely appreciate it.

    Details:
    Size: 11.25" x 7.5" x 1.75"
    Weight: 2.6 lbs.
    2 pieces of bone inlay on the head dress.
    The reverse is signed in pencil "12P" (could be the owners inventory #?)
    No idea what type of wood this is either...

    Thanks for any help :)

      Hi all. This was one of my first posts and my apologies to all who loved it, as I never responded. Can this be a better late than never???

      Thank you all for giving the love! I have just picked this up again and still can not figure out the who, what, where and whens' about it. Frustrated!

      It is really a nice piece. It could be as suggested, but most South American countries had Africans introduced, so it could be a fusion piece, combining both South American and African cultural influences into one work of art.
