I am interested in finding out about the origins of this mask. It is very primitive and simple in design. It appears to be very old and doesn't appear to have ever been painted. There is no indication on the back that it had any type of strap or tie for wearing. Its size just covers the face. The wood is very thick and the patina is fabulous. Lots of smooth, shiny wear. From the back, it looks as though it was chopped to shape it. It's about 9.75" long X 4.25" wide. Any ideas? Could this be a funerary mask of some type?
