Description
From the first glance, sheer mystery radiates at the spectator with an awe inspiring glow making one wonder, who might have once possessed such a powerful instrument? Was this the property of a noble king or a great chief, or did it belong to a brave warrior of a medicine man or great importance? Did the owner of this mask once use its powers to personify himself or did he use it as a tool to transform and/or hide his identity? With these questions left aside, what one will find left in the end is a timeless work of art that commands attention, admiration, and adoration. - (PF.4262)
