This wonderful snake mask represents power. In Yoruba culture snakes can operate both on land and water. This versatility makes them very powerful.
Carefully carved from hardwood, this amazing mask weighs about 3 pounds, and is 17 inches tall by 8.5 inches wide. The mask is designed to lay flat on a table or to be mounted on the wall.
You will notice this mask has some fine cracks, mostly at the top of the mask. These are typcially because the wood was not completely dry when it was carved. In a humid climate these will diminish, in a dry climate they will exacerbate.
Because of this I have discounted this piece significantly and have added this disclosure. It would still make a wonderul piece for your home or office. Some people think the fine cracks add character and a sense of age.
