Gemstone gourd mask from Brazil. One of kind artifact made by artisans from the south of Brazil, fashioned from a large thick locally grown porongo, or cabasa gourd (Lagenaria siceraria). Natural clay is used to mold the facial features. Semi precious gemstones are applied to form the headdress and various facial aspects. Bamboo dangling earrings also feature molded clay and gemstones. A massive clump of amethyst crystals radiates from the forehead. The creators of this mask intended it to serve as a talisman for protection and good fortune. Measures about 15 inches. Here is a stunning mask, impressive and decorative, as well as projecting a powerful and attractive presence.
