Bali & Java

Another unusual Balinese mask

Q:  Purchased 02/19/2018 for $10.99.  Raquel, 1293

A:  Everything I just said to Brian applies to Raquel’s mask as well. On both we can see a slightly reduced quality typical of tourist masks. Those made for professional dancers are much finer… and more expensive. Most of these, both tourist and professional, come from either Mas or Singapadu, Bali, and are produced by hereditary carvers with excellent training. Please let us know who this guy is!  C+
