This wonderful Basketry Gable Mask is from the Black Water Lakes, Kangingara Village, South of the Sepik River in Papua New Guinea. These masks whether very large or medium size aided in their becoming an overpowering physical manifestation of male potency and prestige. From the central of the front facade, the gable mask, conceived as an magical protector, and looked down menacingly on all who came within a certain distance of the men's house. This is a wonderful and powerful woven Gable Mask and it plays a significant role in the lives of men. It was collected in the field and shows some age. A great addition to any collection.
