Iatmul Savi Mask. Crocodile Middle Sepik. PNG. Papua New Guinea.
Savi masks are known for their tongues. Such tongues – sticking out of the mask’s mouth – is a sign of aggressiveness toward enemies of their clan and as a protection against black magic. In this case, the tongue is in the shape of a crocodile (pukpuk) and represents an ancestor or clan spirit.
In excellent condition.
