Masker - Hout - Yua - YUPIK - Noord Amerika
2e helft 20e eeuw - Goed

Yua Mask of the Yupik People, West Coast of Alaska - Wood, vegetable fibres and natural pigments - Dimensions without the limbs: 22 x 18. This mask, brought back in the middle of the 20th century, of quite primitive design, retakes the characteristics of the masks of this people. “The Yupik are famous for their craftsmanship of ceremonial masks. Their aspect varies depending on their use, ranging from little finger masks to large masks requiring several carriers. Masks are created specifically for an occasion and following the dream of the shaman: the spirit must have manifested itself, in order to represent it correctly. When he does not craft it himself, he indicates to the sculptor what he must do. Although the formal continuity is undeniable, each mask is unique and its craftsmanship is subject to the desires and sensibility of the sculptor. He draws from a common repertory of forms, but appropriates and adapts those” (Wikipedia).
