I found a mask similar to one above at Disney's Trader Sam's. It's a different color scheme, but same exact carving and size. Is it worth picking up? Is a it real PNG mask or is some kind of studio mask from filming?

Thanks
S.J.

Oceanic Arts makes/sells those in both a painted and unpainted version. They also come two sizes.

Is it really a mask if there are no eye holes? It's more of a wall hanging,

My bar is designed to look like an early 20th century explorers club, like the one seen in the kon tiki movie. Each of my six walls are decorated with artifacts from Africa, South America, Southeast Asia, the gulf and the islands of the north and South Pacific Ocean. I posted that picture of teddy hunting in Africa, because he is one of the quintessential american explorers. He's one of center pieces of my bar, I have an original print of that photo of him hunting in central Africa hanging in my bar. I will post pictures of it soon in another forum. I'm waiting on a few key pieces to arrive.

Hopefully this tiki enough???
