The Mask Man needs help

 

aaaMystrySolvd-1024-aQ:  any info you can give me on this mask i would appreciate… i collect african masks  but i have never come across one like this….. it is aprox 17 inches top to bottom, 11 inches wide.  Thank you for your help.  Shaun, 1024

A:  Though it seems large, with the cushion on the rear it will fit well on the top of an adult head. The dancer can see through the open mouth. It could be a tourist mask… or it could be real. I just don’t know. Please write in with your comments.

We now have two comments from readers who at least agree that this is from somewhere in Africa. I am not sure of either Boki or Yombe, but my research was limited.
