Rare Bronze Mask from South India

Rare Bronze Mask from South India


Throughout South East Asia, masks are used by dancers to depict stories from religion and mythology. The most commonly found masks were those of Rakshashas, a mythological being who could assume different forms. These masks played an important apotropaic role in these rituals, believed to dispel sickness and disease.

This cast bronze mask from the Southern Indian state of Karnataka bears the traditional markings of a fierce warrior or possible Rakshashas, with the crown and earrings, mustache and strategically placed tilak. His eyes are open wide with iris in full view as is usually depicted in pictures and sculptures of Rakshasas. Showcase this magnificent mask on a side table or shelf and let it add traditional charm and an ambiance of sophistication.
