During the Potlatch Ban having Potlatch items was considered illegal so simpler masks like this one were made in case they were seized, and they were danced by Secret Societies. This type of mask is rare because not very many of them survived as most of these masks were burned as part of the ceremonies after being danced, the mask was meant to be a disposable item. This is a nice old piece with bold details and impressive look. Not many old NWC masks like this are in circulation any more. May or may not have nicks, dings, rubs, scratches, cracks, losses, repairs and imperfections etc as is common with handmade Native arts, see photos for condition...
