Katoyo Mask. 

Carved Wood.
9” x 7” x 16” tall

Katoyo masks depict European Colonials in a cartoonish and lampooned manner. This mask features exaggerated features, bulbous beard and fang like teeth.
A reaction to the foreign presence - these masks were danced to poke fun at an awkward and non-harmonious presence.

Carved from a single piece of wood, wear commiserate with age. Gap and light cracking in forehead. See detail photos.
