Kwakiutl Bear Mask Auction



2015-07-06 16:35:51

I'm on the fence about this thing. One the one hand, it's very nicely made, well decorated and I even appreciate the way that the the opening mouth mechanism works. On the other hand, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! This Kwakiutl (don't ask me how to pronounce it) transformation mask has the face of the bear with the face of a rightly terrified looking man in the bear's mouth. Great way to make new friends, Sotheby's reckon this beauty is worth anywhere between $200,000-300,000.
