Definitely, this mask was handcrafted by a confident individualist!  It's outstanding features are the startling, wide open eyes and a gaping mouth showing upper teeth and the tip of the tongue.  Attention-getting are the dynamic complementary and constrasting red, yellow, cream and black dots/spots all over the surface.  Visually there is a struggle between the carved volumns of the mask, the painted decorations, and the rows of tiny dashes that creep like an exuberant vine over the whole face.  This is not a mask for the faint-hearted or one looking for a pretty bit of tribal accent for the powder room!!  Collected prior to 2006. Stained wood handcrafted in Kenya.
