Guatemalan Tecun Uman Mask with Glass Eyes
Vintage Tecun Uman handcarved hardwood mask from Guatemala with original handpainted glass eyes.
This dance mask measures 7" wide x 7 3/4" tall x 6" from the nose tip to the back edge of the ears. The original paint is in beautiful shape with only some minor paint wear. One eye is green and the other is blue. The inside of the mask has a beautiful patina from actual use on the raised sections that touched the forehead, nose, and chin. The inside of the mask appears lighter in the photograph than it actually is because of camera flash. The original cotton string has browned with age and shows signs of wear.
A great example of Guatemalan carving!
