This is not a modern "tourist job" and has quite some age to it. I think possibly from New Guinea-New Hebrides area but will bow to greater knowledge if someone out there can assist. Looks like it might be a Lizard Mask but certainly it is well done and the colours appear be vegetable or natural dyes rather than paint. Measures 19" x 8". Some wood splits.
