M-12 WOODEN YAM MASK

Japenko village, Southern Abelam, western Wosera, PNG

 

The mask is well carved and painted; painted work is always the dominant feature of Abelma art, the carved form generally being more simplified. Tied to a yam at the yam-lining ceremony to depict its “face”.

With custom-made metal stand.
