Rare Massive Antique Tibetan Repousse Gilt Metal Ceremonial Buddhist Lama Mask :
GJPaw sales is pleased to offer an antique Tibetan Religious Ceremonial Mask. The mask is constructed of carefully tooled and thinly hammered layers of brass over what appears to be lacquered cloth, with wrapping at the top and bottom edges to protect the wearer from rubbing against the metal.Such masks would've been produced at only the largest of Tibetan monasteries where the resources and craftsman to oversee the production process resided. Masks like this would've been used for annual religious dance festivals, such as the Rinpung, as a representation of protective deities and spirits. The size of this piece is particularly commanding and the solemn expression is quite stunningThe mask (including the stand) measures 11.5 inches wide by 6.2 inches deep by 19.3 inches tall, or 29.21 cm wide by 15.75 cm deep by 49.02 cm tall.
