|Q: I have a wooden hand carved mask. It is 18H x 12.5W x 11D. It was found in storage auction unit that I won. I only know that previous owner traveled a lot in Asia, Africa and many islands, and from every place he brought something. Wood masks, sculptures, helmets etc, nothing contemporary but usually very old antiques and he furnished his house with expensive furniture, pirate furniture made of wood of sunken ships. This mask is one of the collection. Where is it from? How old could it be and how much could it cost. Please, could you help me with that? Eva, 1481
A: Eva hasn’t given us much to go on. I’m stumped. It could be any of the following: Authentic mask from some unknown culture, Tourist mask from somewhere, or Art project from a school, prison, hobbyist, etc. Please comment with your guess.
