Object Name Mask
Description One carved and painted wooden mask. The mask depicts a human face and has been painted red with black hair. It has green glass eyes, but two eye holes for the wearer are present above and inside of the glass eyes. Small fangs protrude from the closed mouth. A green frog with white spots is sprawled across the mask's forehead. Two snakes (or tadpoles) are on the cheeks facing the nose - one on each cheek.
A thin faded red string runs from ear to ear on the back of the mask. The initials JC are branded onto the back by the right temple.
