Lot of 3 Vintage Guatemalan Painted Wood Masks

Lot 0064A Details

Description
Central America, Guatemala, ca. early 20th century. A wonderful trio of hand-carved and hand-painted wooden dance masks, perhaps representing characters from the Dance of the Conquest. Each visage presents with skillfully delineated facial features, mustaches (one with a goatee as well), and thick coiffures. All have openwork eyes for the wearer to see surrounded by long eyelashes which are traditional to the culture. One that has maroon-colored skin displays a pair of perched green birds with red breasts and white details flanking its forehead. Together they make a fabulous ensemble! Size of largest: 7" W x 8.75" H (17.8 cm x 22.2 cm)

Provenance: private Los Angeles County, California, USA collection, acquired by descent from the owner's father, acquired from 1950 to 1990

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.

We ship worldwide to most countries and handle all shipping in-house for your convenience.
