Q: I am a collector of Oceanic material and just bought this mask at a local auction. It is 21 inches long and seems to be old, but I really don’t know where it’s from. It’s full of decoration, mostly scorpions and birds. Niek, 701
A: This is a mystery for the Mask Man as well. Sure, it could be from somewhere in Oceania, but I wouldn’t rule out other areas of Asian, or even Africa. I hope you came to the right place. Maybe one of our visitors will recognize something familiar in your pictures and make a comment. It doesn’t look like a tourist souvenir. Please help!
