Himalayan crowned mask. Nepalese or Indian Terai

(Inventory no.24)

HIMALAYAN CROWNED MALE MASK

Himalayan crowned male mask. Terai. Masque couronnè de l'Himalaya. Terai. Mannliche gekronte Himalajamaske. Mascara del Himalaya coronada.  Гималайская коронованная маска мужского пола. ヒマラヤ戴冠させた男性のマスク。 terai区域ネパール . Maschera maschile coronata della regione himalayana, Terai.  

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... .

 Complitely different the style of a crowned male  mask of King or Hero from Himachal Pradesh, see more on http://ethnoflorence.skynetblogs.be/post/5887534/himachal... .

For a more classic view of the Kali masks iconography see the comparation of three items on http://ethnoflorence.skynetblogs.be/post/5977909/differen... .

Two interesting and old crowned mask are recently edited on http://ethnoflorence.skynetblogs.be/post/6265565/himalaya... .

 Himalayan crowned mask. Nepalese or Indian Terai.Interesting, and very used  crowned mask of the Terai region . The mask has been repainted and introduces an interesting original restauration.The circumstance that the restauration was also repainted, it makes us think that this mask, despite an evident damage, it was still used. Particular importance of the mask for its ethnic group of origin? Impossibility to replace it? Examining the top of the mask we can also notice an impressive state of deterioration of the wood. Also the back side of the mask introduces a strong state of usury of the wood. In my opinion a kali mask.

A fracture on the side of the mask was covered with fabric and repainted along with the rest of the mask.

*************************************************************

An Iconographic comparation in possible with other Kali masks of Ethnoflorence Collection,  interesting and unique is the ancient black crying Kali mask on :
http://ethnoflorence.skynetblogs.be/post/5844563/himalaya... , the patina of this mask is analogous to that of the Fang reliquary.

3 Kali masks are edit also on http://ethnoflorence.skynetblogs.be/post/5977909/differen... .

Another interesting Kali mask is edited on http://ethnoflorence.skynetblogs.be/post/6194834/ancient-... .

Rastouration detail view. The  lacking part of the mask was restored covering it with a piece of cloth, attacked  to the wood with nails, and therefore
repainted with purple color and gold spots.

Restoration on the chin of the mask. 

Probably using a copper wire.

The fracture that affects the mask, vertically, has been reassembled in the this case through two repairs in the top and bottom of the same.

It is a restoration technique rather common in masks of this area.

A second area affected by the restoration covers the side of the mask.
