Old, authentic and really powerful
This Mask by Jack James is very powerful and very easy recognizable as one of his pieces. The exact age of this mask is unknown, but it was carved around the 1950's. Solid red cedar, showns signs of aging and has one minor restoration on one ear (not visible from front). The carving proofs superb craftsmanship.
