This is a wonderful and unique Men's Initiation Mask from the Lewa, Vokeo Island, Shouten Islands, Papua New Guinea. This type of mask is know as a "lewa" mask and represents a male masked spirit or deity. This is a distinct Lewa mask, black pigment, the medial ridge of the forehead and then gracefully transforms into the long, curved nose and a wood bite bar in the back for wearing the mask. They say the people had masked spirits called "Lewa" that instituted prohibitions against certain garden produce that enable ritual leaders to stockpile food to be used later during important ceremonies and festivals. A really exciting and unique mask to add to your collection or home.
