Ancient Nepalese Rajbansi male mask.

The museum quality of this extremely old artifact is evident.

Masks like this are today really difficult to find also in the Katmandu market.

A  picture of this mask, took in Katmandu at  the early 90' with other pieces,  is present in the Ethnoflorence  Private Archive .   印度面具  尼泊尔面具 インドのマスク  ネパールのマスク    маска Индии  маска Непала

kali nera 2

Frontal view. Black and sticky patina, typical of the  Fang reliquary figure.

GetAttachment a

Comparation with the patina of a  Fang head, element from a reliquary ensemble. Fang peoples, Betsi group, Gabon, Mitzic region, Ndjolé. Musée d'Ethnographie, Neuchatel (Photo ETHNOFLORENCE at MET NYC "Eternal Ancestors, The Art of the Central African Reliquary" exhibition). This particulary, important, and rare  quality of patina derives from the fact that over the corse this artifact was used, the suface of the wood was completely impregned with applications of palm oil, in the present this beautifull piece of art continues to exude that substance.

 dyn002_original_320_240_pjpeg_2638188_19d5c469044fc2dea8de9c39c4e29102

Side A view. Restoration and sticky exceptional  patina detail, traces of old colors pigments. About the use to impregnate with oil masks or other artifacts in India the Bhuia Tribe (border line Madhyapradesh-Orissa) used a mask for ritual dances associated with the hunt profezia during annual holiday, the wood of this item was impregnated of oil.
