Interesting the plastic iconography of this imposing crowned mask. Traces of color on natural patinated wood. This mask testifyes how much rich and various can be the iconographic repertoire of the Terai area. 

Among the Ethnoflorence collection of   himalayan crowned  mask I suggest a visit to an understanding black kali crying mask, something of really unique and  similar to a Fang reliquary, see more on http://ethnoflorence.skynetblogs.be/post/5844563/himalaya... .
