Description
Mask - Bamboo, Cloth, Wood - dans le style Yupik
Early 21st century - Good

Originally, the Yupik people are famous for the craftsmanship of ceremonial masks.

Their aspect varies depending on their use, ranging from small finger masks, to large masks requiring several carriers.
Masks are created specifically for an occasion and following the dream of the shaman: the spirit must have manifested itself, in order to represent it correctly. When he does not craft it himself, he indicates to the sculptor what he must do.
