Here is a wooden Fijian mask with a hand carved turtle representing the god of the ocean, the mask measures about 8 INCHES. This mask was hand carved and hand painted.
It's a beautiful piece of art! Great Tiki decor for your Tiki Bar area or simply your home!
Fijian culture: Carving was practiced by the men; carving would be used for items of practical use and simple shapes and design were used. A lot of effort was put into well adorned weapons and items for the home and ceremony, today carving is practiced for its use in tourism and no longer plays a major role in Fijian society and life except in the case of the Tanoa used from drinking Kava.
