Indigenous Clay Mask



This mask is a replica of indigenous masks used throughout rituals performed by Nepal tribes. Ritual masks normally represent deities, mythological beings, good and evil spirits, spirits of ancestors and the dead, animal spirits, and other beings believed to have power over humanity. Masks of human ancestors or totem ancestors (beings or animals to which a clan or family traces its ancestry) are often objects of family pride; when they are regarded as the dwelling of the spirit they represent, they may be honored with ceremonies and gifts. Most of these masks are created locally of indigenous materials for particular ceremonies and are put away for the remainder of the year.

This particular mask is a replica of the Nepal mask made out of clay for decoration purpose only.
