Balinese Mask Hanuman Monkey Carved wood Bali ART Old Indonesian
This is an older mask of Hanuman The White Monkey General of Lord Rama is in really superb condition for the age. It is painted in a white chalky type of paint with red, black & gold accents. There are signs of age which are consistent with the age. There are no cracks at all in the wood. Truly a great example of Balinese cultural art. This type of mask is used as a guardian or protector and is usually placed over a door or window to protect the inhabitants from being disturbed by demons or evil spirits.
This mask was carved in the Ubud area and is one in a series that I obtained from a family of Mask Carvers in a small village north east of Ubud. These mask are from their own collection and are older with a great used patina, not new. Each mask has a different expression and are one of a kind and perfect for a mask collection.
