Description

Unusual 1930's Art Deco bronze mask with an emerald and gold colored face in the Aztec style.
Original Aztec masks would have been used as ornaments and were sometimes used as part of a ritual, or as a death mask. Later on in history the idea was adapted so that they became hand held masks made of a lighter material, covering the faces of dancers at masquerade balls. This fashion continues today in some countries.
This bronze mask is displayed on an Art Deco style, pyramid shaped black marble base.
Internal Ref: 030
