    Elegant mask presenting itself in meditation. The half-moon eyebrow arches meet to form the nasal ridge. A stylized bird appears. The raised mouth seems to emit a hissing sound, a sign of confidence in the face of danger.
    Scarifications on the temples and between the eyebrows.
    The mask is adorned with a headdress made of three scraper circles.

    Very nice patina.
