Masks of the World


Pretty cool Guatemalan mask

Q:   I have 2 mystery masks. Here is the first one. Paid $18 for a antique extravaganza. Could it be from Guatemala? Mexico? It’s pretty cool.  Gena, 1100

A:  I picked this one to post. Indeed it is a cool mask. Even though a cheaply made commercial product, it looks so Guatemalan. You know instantly it could come from nowhere other than the mountains of Central America. Of course, most serious collectors don’t want “tourist junk” on their walls.  Perhaps some collectors would be revolted by this guy (especially anthropologists), but I think the mask is a keeper!   C
