The original price tag from the African Art gallery that this helmet mask came from was for $3800. All of the other items from this out of business gallery that had price tags were consistently priced at typical gallery market rates, so it is safe to assume that this Janus mask has some age and value to it. My reserve price on this mask is very low... some lucky person is going to get a great deal on this unique African item.
