Q: This measures 10 1/2 x 6 x 3 1/2. I believe it is of plaster. It came from a mask collector. I paid $6. Thank you. Edward, 1636
A: This is a nice example of an art mask. It is signed “NR.” You should find out how to contact the artist. Ask the collector you bought it from. It might be worth much more. Ed hasn’t gotten back to us yet.
Though we mostly help people who want to know more about a tribal mask they have acquired, MaskoftheWorld.com also accepts masks made for protection, protest, parties and various forms of art. This mask is made of papier mache mixed with plaster. It can be worn or hung on the wall, and will last for a long time.
Notice how well sculpted and painted it is. NR is obviously a talented artist. It surely is worth a lot more than six dollars. A
