An excellent, robust Chancay Mummy Bundle Mask. Made from the Alder tree with uniformly applied gritty red cinnabar. Red is the color of the east, the rising sun, and thus a sign of the resurrection to new life. Large, rounded-shaped head. Strong naturalistic facial features with diamond-shaped eyes. Measures 12″/30.48cm in height unmounted. Central coastal region, Peru 1200-1470 AD. Exceptional and large.
