Old Masks
Show: 
Timor's Treasures
Getting fewer and farther between, these older masks represent an indicator of the strength that is still inherent within traditional Timorese tribal handcraft.

Using age old techniques and tools that have not changed much in the last 400 years the creators of these works of art have imbibed much of the Timorese spirit of independence and self sufficiency in to each unique piece.

Timorese masks fall into 3 main categories. Those made with paddle handles that are used to 'hide' ones face when raiding a neighbour in times of hunger. Those made to be placed inside the hut above the front entrance that repel anyone with evil intent and allow people of good intent to pass through the doorway and also used by Atoni men to 'put on a face' when dancing.

As a fellow field collector says " and then there are those that find you".

Please email if you would like to see more images and also for freight cost. All items have been treated to AQIS standards.
