Old Balinese Drama Mask Topeng Princess Dance Carved wood Bali ART
Balinese Princess Drama Mask
The Balinese use the Drama or Calang Arang to tell stories that have been passed down for generations. Each mask embodies a different character. The Balinese believe that when a performer wears a mask that he becomes the character they are portraying, or that the mask comes to life. The mask are blessed by a Hindu priest before each performance. The performances are considered sacred. And an important part of Balinese culture.
This mask is Putri Princess . He was carved in the Ubud area and is one in a series that I bought last winter 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.
This is an older vintage mask, and has wear that is expected with the age of this mask.
Carved of pule wood. A wood often used for mask making. carved with nice details. This mask comes complete with strap and you could actually wear this mask as part of a costume.
Perfect collector piece.
- Size is about
