More about this item

FAKE! "Kwakiutl North West Coast American Indian Mask" Buy or make an offer on this . . . FAKE! . . . I'll mention it again, FAKE! Kwakiutl/Kwakwaka'wakw, North West Coast, American Indian mask . . . most likely made in Indonesia and carved from Acacia wood. Though NOT an authentic American Indian mask, it was hand carved/painted and does feature (from an Indonesian's perspective) North West Coast symbols including a Totem atop the head. The mask is life size measuring approximately 9-1/4" long X 6-3/4" wide with a projection of 4-1/2" and is in very good condition with some wood grain bleeding through the decorative paint . . . one more time . . . IT'S A FAKE! Purchased at an auction, the mask came professionally mounted in a shadow box. I removed it from the box to view it's hollow to see if any markings existed. There were no markings but there was/is a round sticker (see photo of backside) which displays "IV3369 400" in someone's handwriting . . . evidence that, at one time it was passed off as an authentic Kwakiutl Indian mask. From talking to others who collect authentic tribal masks, one of the first things to 'look' at when weeding out the FAKES is the type of wood used to create the mask. Make an offer . . . you might be surprised! Â
