DescriptionKWOMO, Sepik River, Papua, New Guinea, Melanesia
Wood, pigment, fiber
This very long-nosed mask probably represents a mythical being. Eyes are not pierced for a dancer's sight, holes for costume attachment around the edges are absent, so the mask was not danced. Rather it was probably suspended by a fiber cord passed through the single hole at the top of the mask and displayed in the men's house.
Height: 19 ½ inches
Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000.
