Art and artifact
 Oct 27, 2010

A complicated piece with incised metal strips, two cowrie shells, and strings of tiny beads (in the triangles above the eye slots). Another buyer complained that it is less colorful than what's shown in the photo, but I used a soft damp sponge and gently removed some of the stain on the beaded areas to bring out some of the colors. I may apply a matte varnish sometime in the future to emphasize the colors, or perhaps not -- I very much like the soft brown tones and the very slightly bluish rim around the mask. Wouldn't want to change them. It's the first mask I've have ever purchased. I can see now why people collect them. It's both art and artifact.
