This is an old mask from the Murik Lakes region of the lower Sepik River. This mask comes from the collection of Isabel and Jack Pert who lived in the Madang area in the 1960’s and 1970’s. They were prodigious collectors and from what I have read much of their stuff dated to the 1950’s or earlier. Nicely carved and incised mask with a heavy patina or paint layer. It is 28 inches tall.
