Old Masks
Timor's Treasures
Untitled document Getting fewer and farther between, these older masks are a true representation of the inherent strength that is deeply embedded within traditional Timorese tribal handcraft.

Using age old techniques and tools that have changed little in the last 400 years the creators of these works of art have imbibed much of the Timorese spirit of independence and self-sufficiency into 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 repels anyone with evil intent and allowing 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. We have created a Zz Freight category to the left at the bottom of categories and you will find a code A B C etc within the description of your treasure that will indicate which table the postage costs fall under. All items have been treated to AQIS standards.
