HIMALAYAN MASKs : BACK SIDE AND PATINA. N.1. Patina strordinaria delle maschere Himlayane, un invito ed un confronto ai collezionisti di maschere Africane.

Himalayan Masks, back side and patina. Surfing on the web, we can see a lot of tribal artifacts, a lot of web sites are devoted to African Tribal Art .... a really great mess of masks in this field ... but normally the back sides are not edited (and the provenance of the single pieces  a really rebus). To understand if a mask is  genuine or fake .... genuine but new or recent,  the examinations of the back side it's really important . In this field the superiority, authenticity, antiquity  and genuinity of the Indian  and Himalayan masks and Art  ... it's evident ... so, dear friend collectors ... let's go ahead and support Himalayan Folk and Tribal Art. (work in progress)
