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... .

Four Western Himalayan (?) masks, in the same style, from the same hand or workship, surely from the same remote and unknown village. Quatre masques  de L'Himalaya Occidental, de la même main . Vier Westliche Himalajamaskes, von derselben Hand . Cuatro máscaras Occidental del Himalaya, de la misma mano. Четыре Западных Гималайских маска, от той же руки . 同じ手または村からの4つの西部のヒマラヤマスク。Quattro maschere della regione occidentale dell'Himalaya, da un confronto degli elementi stitlistici propri di ciascuna si può dedurre provengano certamente dallo stesso remoto villaggio, siano probabilmente opera della stessa mano o dello stesso contesto artigiano. 尼泊尔面具  印度面具

GetAttachment1

Mask n1. Assimmetric style of the face, double expression of the mouth. Ambiguos mask, in which there is a double expression of the mouth, if the actor covers the upper part of the mouth, there is a ridicolous expression with two deformed teeth (we can re-find this kind of exagerate deformation in many masks of the Terai region or for example in some terracotta heads of the south India - Tamil Nadu district).

tn1208980984_jpgDeformed teeth in a Terai mask.

 But if the actor covers the lower part of the mouth, the mask becomes terryfing with it's aggressive teeth (few examples in Terai mask, more in the contest of the so called Middle Hills masks).

tn1207900964_jpgAggressive teeth in a MH mask

 About the theory that some of the so called "tribal" or "primitive" masks of the Himalaya could be represent something of symbolic and atypic, about the "narrateur bouffon", a kind of mask that can makes one laugh, but also make one scared, on "Himalaya masques" Galerie le Toit du Monde Paris, Editions Findakly 2007 there is an interesting writing "Travestissements A propos des masques dits - primitifs-" by Ms Gisèle Krauskopff. Among the masks publicated in this catalogue also the n.64 pag.108 it's in my opinion an ambigous mask with a double expression of the mouth. Wrathful expression in the above part of the mouth and a long tongue in the belower.  

tn1207906689_jpgFor an iconographic comparation a Terai mask with an exagerate tongue. In this item however the deformation it's not associated with a double expression of the mouth.

The prominent chin it is similar with the one of several Mohra brass effigies; in Rural Art of the Western Himalaya, Subashini Aryan published a male crowned mask from the collection of her father, that it is quite similar, with the present one.
