This expressive face is called the Himalayan and is made by Bossons of England. This wall mask man of Mongolian ancestry has heavy black eyebrows and a strong black gray mustache beard. His white teeth are very realistic as are his face lines of weather and age. The detail work is really remarkable right down to the heavy fir hat he is wearing to ward off the cold of the mountains he often travels in and the gold earring he wears in his left ear. The colors are strong and very true. The face is 6 inches long and 3 inches wide. The back is painted silver and has a hole for hanging and the embossed words Bossons ,Ongleton, England world copyright. The back also has a 1 inch gold round sticker that reads in black letters "Imagical models by Bossons". The green 3 dimensional bottom has engraved in it "Himalayan, 1966, Bosson, England. The Bossons company made wall heads from 1950 to 1996. They are painted by hand by women who have a distinct ability to show real faces in paint. They are made in molds after being cast in plaster. There is a white chip on the back of this piece on the bottom edge and two paint scrapes on the top and bottom of the hole to hang the head. This has no affect on the gorgeous weathered perfect face of this man on the front. Shipping weight is 3 pounds. This face would be a wonderful first piece for someone who wishes to start collecting these wonderful heads.
