Portrait of a white man

I bought this mask about 30 years ago. It came without information, but there was no doubt it represented a bearded white man. I was certain it was carved some where in Africa. Since then I have seen others. Two of the best are a Dogon mask on page 72 of Susan Vogel’s Africa Explores, and the one of Elvis Presley in the Brooklyn Museum’s collection. But there are many more and almost all are funny. Have you seen one?  1057
