Mortal Struggle Mask
Makes for original and striking wall décor.
A homage to the eternal mortal struggle in nature between the hunter and the hunted. This piece is a hybrid mask type – the ‘eco-diablo‘ paying respect to striking local wildlife: the mighty crocodile and its prey, the wetland bittern – all combined within the ceremonial mask design used in their age-old tribal ceremony.
This mask is hand carved from balsa wood and vividly painted. The seminal design here is the classic Brunka diablo mask used in their annual ceremony.
