VERY OLD LARGE HAND CARVED ANTIQUE/VINTAGE MASK/WALL HANGING
This is a great Mask for people who like ELEPHANT or just want a little more good fortune. This is old vintage mask. I am particularly fond of him because he is considered the 'protector of travelers' and I travel often. He is also known as the student 'God of wisdom' and the 'bringer of good husbands'. Lastly, he is renowned as the 'remover of obstacles'. His belly is round as he enjoys the good things in life. He is happy-go-lucky and easy to approach as Deities go.
This beautiful handcrafted Mask comes from skilled craftsmen in NEPAL & INDIA. It comes from Himalayan Mask Center on Jochen Tole in the old Durbar (Palace) Square district of Kathmandu. My friend Prakash told me that he travels to villages in the Himalayas between Kathmandu and Tibet to find these masks. Condition is good. It has a few dings and scratches, but nothing too notable. You can see hints of various colors peaking out here and there. It adds to the character of the mask.
