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 . (A second edition with more and enlarged photos of this mask is in progress - coming soon) 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

Visit also the unique and understanding crying Himalayan  Kali mask on http://ethnoflorence.skynetblogs.be/post/5844563/himalaya... , the patina of the artifact is the same of the most famous Fang reliquary.

An old  Rajbansi or maybe Dhimal Lata mask is edited on http://ethnoflorence.skynetblogs.be/post/6207219/ancient-...
