**Originally listed for 150.
Indonesia, Bali or Java, 19th century CE. This is a hand carved wood mask with wide, staring eyes and a pronounced, flat nose. The face is painted white, with black and red details and yellow eyes. Atop the head is a painted crown, and there are curved, black painted details that suggest hair on the side of the face. This mask is from the centuries-old Topeng tradition, made to be worn during the dramatic dances enacted in Bali and to a lesser extent Java that depict traditional stories of kings, princes, heroes, and myths. Size: 6.25" W x 6.5" H (15.9 cm x 16.5 cm)
