Q: Daniela ask: Unfortunately I don’t know anything about the mask. We bought it from somebody in Czech.
This mask definitely catches your attention. Aaron of the maskmuseum.org suggests it might be a Papuan gulf mask or possibly from Northwest Africa. I’m leaning towards Papua New Guinea. If anyone has any thoughts, I’d love to hear them.
Thanks for your terrific website. I used to teach a mask-making and design course called The Eye of the Mask: A History of the Theatre Through Maskmaking and Design. We studied numerous cultures and their use of masks for religious and cultural festivals.
I bought several of your books and collected many, many more. I recommend using YouTube to find
actual festival depictions and Pinterest is a good free way to upload thousands of images.
If anyone is interested in purchasing any mask books I have a great number for sale on Amazon under the seller name Outofspace.
