Subject: Overmodelled masks

Overmodelled masks

From: Marianne Klaus <magma01>
Date: Monday, April 29, 2002
For my diplomawork on overmodelled masks from the Sepik region in
Papua New Guinea (PNG), I am looking for conservators and scientists
who have experience with the identification of tropical wood and/or
masses used in PNG for overmodelling masks and skulls (the mass on
the objects I am working with seems to be made of two different
kinds of clay, tree-oil and lime),or who have already worked on
overmodelled or similar masks from that region.
