Description

This is a wood painted mask from Ecuador, likely made by the Quechua speaking Indians who live in the northern most parts of the Andes. The hard wood and large, round eye holes are distinctive of Ecuadorian masks. This mask could have been made for performance and used once or twice, or simply a money-maker to sell to tourists.
