Monpa or Sherdukpen, Arunachal Pradesh or Bhutan
19th / very early 20th century
Wood, pigment

Price: $8500

This striking mask is extremely well carved and displays significant age. The image seems to convey the impression of a bat/vampire type creature of the night. This is a fine example of the type of mask found in what was formerly known as the NE Indian Frontier where the borders of Bhutan and Arunachal Pradesh meet.
