    This was purchased in an estate sale. Beautifully carved and hand painted. Familiar to another deity I’ve seen in cultural studies. Curious what other knowledge someone can share.

      I think what you havevis a section of a Srilankan fire mask. Yours seems to be missing the outside sections..

      Here's an example..

      And use and meanings..
