This Abelam Yam Mask is from the Wosera area and features a Parrot image. The thick layers of pigment are fairly intact but do have some wear from handling over time. There is also a small break in the top open band. Nice patination at the edges as well as the front edge of the beak. A unique find as the backside of this large mask is also decorated. The mask measures 15" tall x 13" wide. Mid to later 20th century.
