Vintage Iroquois False Face Mask including Tobbacco Pouches to Feed The Mask. "The masks are not artifacts, but living representations of a spirit. One of the rules governing the care of the masks is the need to periodically anoint them with a mixture of sunflower seed oil and animal grease. At the same time the masks are fed white corn mush. In payment for their services tobacco is burned for them and small bags of tobacco are tied to them. The masks are carved directly on a Live Tree and only removed when completed. During the process of carving the mask and cutting it free, a prayer is addressed to the evolving mask and to the spirit forces which it represents. The mask is then painted and adorned with horse hair and Metal Copper Eye Accents. Excellent Very Nice Vintage Condition. 11" x 6-1/2"
