Name: Ta Oy Spirit Mask
A tall, skinny protective mask from southern Laos, this is a beady eyed and somewhat fierce image despite the pleasant smile. This mask, of undetermined age, shows signs of use and wear, from smoothed patina from handling, wood checking from age which imbues character particularly to the chin and forehead areas, to multiple layers of coloring from use and handling.
Size: 11.25 in. x 4.75 in.
