Headdress Figure

Physical description

Portrait mask. From an unpainted and hollowed half sphere base emerges a long neck and head, painted white. The face holds red eyes outlined in black, with lines of black underneath, and thick black brows above. Between the brows is a small black and red decoration. The nose protrudes, with a wide bridge and slightly flared nostrils. The mouth is open and shows several white teeth. The lips are red and black. Long lines of black extend from the corners of the mouth to the sides of the face at an upward angle. A large headdress sits atop the head, with three triangular pieces extending down to the neck at sides of face and back of head. Two large curved horns crown the headdress, painted black and light blue. The black portion is ribbed. Several small holes are bored through the base of the piece at regular intervals.
