Fabulous nineteen seventh to early 80’s Solomon Islands mask.
Hand made from one single piece of ebony wood with pearl shell inlay. The art of the Solomon Islands is characterized by its intricate designs, which utilize inlays of pearl shell. Traditionally, these artworks were either symbols of status and prestige. One of a kind piece.
The Solomon Islands comprise a double chain of seven large and more than thirty small islands, located just east of New Guinea.
