jan 26, 2184 - Buk Mask

Description:

Turtle shell, fiber, feathers, wood, shells
Torres Strait
The ceremonies often involved performances in which senior men, wearing the masks together with rustling costumes of grass, reenacted events from the lives of culture-heroes, drawn from local oral tradition. Worn over the head like a helmet, this work depicts a human face, possibly portraying one such culture-hero.
