Unusual metal mask from Indonesia


Q:  A friend has sent me this metal mask. I don’t think it’s authentic ethnographic but I can’t place the likely origin. I thought possibly Indonesian. Any ideas?  Jon, 567

A:  I agree on Indonesia, the southern part, Timor or Sumba.

I just had a shoulder operation and must learn to type with one finger. This will limit the amount I can write to you folks… hopefully not for too long!
