India & Himalayas

Animal mask from Himalayas

aaaMystrySolvd-970-aQ:  Only know that my brother got this in either East Asia or East India at least 20 years ago.  No other information known.  Brent, 970

A:  In the Himalayan region various animal deities can be part of the religious rituals. This carving comes from Nepal or Bhutan, but is not as carefully made as some. It is short in depth and would look good on the wall. It’s probably a tourist masks.  BaaaMystrySolvd-970-b
