Vintage Northwest Coast Indian Mask - SOLD
Vintage Native American Northwest Coast Mask. Hand-carved and decorated wooden mask by the Makah nation of the Northwestern tip of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, perhaps circa 1950s or 60s. A subtle and sublime, yet powerful work of art.The Makah were historically a great whaling tribe (imagine harpooning a whale from a canoe!), and had much early contact with New England whalers and fur traders.
