I have had this for a while. It's about 18 inches long and it is also a yipwon spirit figure. I made the mistake of washing what I thought was grime off of it. It was black when I got.

Picked this mask up today at a flea market. From what I can gather on the net it is a Savi style mask from the middle Sepik River region, possibly village of Tambunam (sp?). It's about 15" long. Age? I would appreciate any other info anyone can offer. Thanks.

Wow! Great find UkuTiki. Unfortunately I do not have any insights to share on this piece other than...simply amazing.

I have a cleaner looking one than yours that's only about 12" tall:


I never did any research on it...
Buzzy Out!

Buzzy,

Here is my source for identifying the mask:

Great mask but the important thing is that mine is bigger than yours
