This mask is from the Torricelli Mountains in  Papua New Guinea   Little is known about this style mask.  I have seen other similar examples with tapering elongated noses but none which have been so heavily abstracted as seen in this form.   It is encrusted with a dark black pigment.  Its simplified shape and form displays beautifully on a custom polished wooden base and metal stand.
