Antique Inuit Eskimo Greenlandic Darkened Wood Hand Carved Dance Mask Rare! OOAK
Antique Inuit East Greenlandic Darkened Wood Hand Carved Dance Mask. This is an antique early 1900's family mask. It was left to us from our Inuit friend from Greenland when she passed away 10 years ago. The mask is wood from the center of a tree, you can see the circles inside. The front of the mask has been darkened with lamp sod, and has ethnic tattoo style carved lines. This is a major find for any first-rate art or anthropological museum. And it comes with family provenance.

The art of Greenland is just as old as the people themselves. From the oldest grave finds we find the incised face, some birds feet or an ornament. The dominant theme from there and up to our modern era is the human being and all its sorrows and joys.
