Mask 2 carving by John Collins
John Collins' mask 2 illustrates the ancient Māori art of 'Ta Moko' - facial tatoo. The exterior 'skin' of the mask is punctuated by cutaway sections with different carving. These cutaway sections show that behind each person is a long line of others, sometimes known, but often hidden.
Carved by hand in coastal Southland from New Zealand Kauri wood, stained and inlaid with Paua shell. Dimensions 475 x 230 mm ( 18 6/8 x 9 inches ). Unique, one off.
