1913 Calf Weaner Folk Art
Mysterious, ritualistic, artistic, and functional, masks are designed to conceal cover and protect. They also reveal more than the wearer may have intended. Long retired or cast off from its previous life as an integral part of an era or culture each of these guises carries a history of use and reuse and begs to be transformed yet again. This calf weaner is dated 1913 and was modified by the owner by adding a leather strip and cloth padding. The strap and metal portion of the mask are from the original design."
