Q: I think this is bronze. Can’t find it anywhere on the net. The Cobras on the forehead and the turtles on the ears caught our attention as well as the symbols on the base. Jim, 9-11-13
A: It is a very appealing bronze sculpture. From where, I do not know. Lost wax bronze castings are done in many parts of the world, and in some places like China and India, for over 1000 years. I also want to point out that it is not a mask. My definition of mask is something meant to be worn for ceremony, celebration, or some other function. This piece is meant to be decorative art. Perhaps someone reading this post will recognize the style as coming from a particular culture.
