Indian Moon mask, Pacific Northwest

This is a large circular mask carved from alder featuring a central human face set in a wide, flat radial border. The mask was made by artist and carver Peter Prevost of British Columbia, Canada and is Haida in style. The rim of the mask is carved wood and the face protrudes outward from the rim and has eye holes plus an open mouth.
I got this on an interesting website by the Smithsonian Institution that is called www.grius.si.edu. You might want to check it out.  Bob, 1271
