Yup'ik Mask
Punuk, Alaska, High North
Wood, pigments.
Second half of the 20th century.
Dimensions: 54 cm (77 cm including the stand) x 23 cm x 14 cm


Yup'ik mask in wood presenting a face crafted with two distinctively split-up parts. The first part which runs from the top of the hairdo until the nose, was smeared with brown, almost black, pigments, conferring deepness, as well as a mystical aspect to the piece, especially because with the eyes which reinforce these features.

The bottom of the mask, which mainly consists in a pair of cheeks, an open and smiling mouth, with spaced and acerbic teeth, contrasts with the top part.

Very good overall condition, despite a damage on the extremity of the hairdo (have a look at the picture).

Sold with the stand.
