Exhibit Label

Forehead masks of this type leave the dancer's face exposed. Sometimes during the dance the blanket is raised with the forearms to cover the face, allowing the mask to peer over the blanket and heightening the illusion of a bird or animal. This mask is carved of red cedar and is very light in weight. The painting is in the usual colors--black eyebrows, eye detail, and beak; red lips, nostrils, and cheek detail; green eyesockets; and white in various lines and negative areas. (Holm, Crooked Beak of Heaven, 1972)

Automatically Generated From Material

The paint is black, red, white, and green.
