Art dealer, United Kingdom.
Dan Maou masks with such a long beak are quite uncommon.
These masks usually feature a much shorter beak, and furthermore, the very good state of preservation of this piece, seemingly fragile, is quite remarkable.
This mask depicts a bird with a gaze and height watching over the village, and protecting it from evil curses or evil spirits of the bush.
