Description

For sale is an Iroquois false face corn husk mask from Six Nation Reserve.

The Six Nation Reserve of The Grand River in Ontario, Canada is where six Iroquois Nations live together.

Corn husk masks originated with false face wood masks.  These woven masks were made by women and worn by men.

These masks were created in different sizes which have different meanings.

This mask has the typical characteristics of braided nose and puffed cheeks. The picture of the reverse of the mask shows how it is braided.

The measurements of this mask is approx. 6 X 6 inches in total and the mask is in very good condition.

All of these masks have spiritual meaning and ceremonial usage although I do not know the origins of this mask.  This mask came from a collection I recently acquired and was the only one of its kind.

I have been selling tribal art on line since 1999 so buy with confidence.

Please follow my store as new art is added often.
