This mask is an exceptional representation of a Northwest Coast Indigenous portrait mask.
For sale is a vintage Northwest Coast portrait cedar mask representing a woman`s face.
In Northwest Coast culture, most masks depict the human face and are categorized as portrait masks This term implies the likeness of the visage of a real person is intended. Most of these masks are likely stylized representations of mythic ancestors. One may also assume that actual portraiture is intended.
The written inscription states “Haida TribeT. Jackson Woman alone in the Woods”.
The dimensions are 8 1/4 X 7 inches and this exquisite mask is in very good condition for a vintage piece.
