Wild Woman (Dzunukwa) Mask by Jackson Robertson.

Here's your chance to own a mask by Jackson. He didn't carve a lot of masks but is focused on wall art panels so it's difficult to find one of his masks. This is one of his earlier pieces - VERY deep carving and VERY rich in expression. The painting is truly fabulous - this piece doesn't need any horse hair or decoration. It's traditional, powerful and beautiful.

Measurements: 8" x 6" x 5"

Meaning: Dzunukwa (Wild Woman) is a figure in Kwakwaka'wakw mythology. She is an ancestor of the Namgis clan through her son, Tsilwalagame. She is venerated as a bringer of wealth, but is also greatly feared by children, because she is known as an ogress who steals children and carries them home in her basket to eat.
