Q: I have 11 tribal masks that I would like to sell. Some have beads on their faces and others have teeth. They are all different and pretty cool. However I have no clue about what tribe made them. Please let me know if interested and I will send photos. Connie, 1242
A: I’m breaking several of my own rules and publishing the photo of your 11 wood carvings. They were made to look like tribal masks and to be sold as souvenirs or as wall art. Tourist items like these can be fine for decoration, but real masks– the ones that are actually worn in native cultures– are sometimes better looking and always more interesting. Normally I only show real masks on this website.
Your decor items will appeal to many buyers– even if they are not mask collectors. You can sell the 11 masks on eBay or a local flea market.
