Ethnological Carvings

Vintage Collection from a World Traveler

Masks, Wood Carvings, Ceramic and Metals make up this Collection

I came across this collection of
Ethnological Carvings in my travels.
They are approximately 50 - 60 years old
from a number of different countries.
Some are probably early souvenirs
and others were for ceremonial purposes 

This Rams/Goats head is my favorite....made from a real skull
and jawbone...with real teeth and horns
and then decorated ornately
with tooled copper, brass, tin and several jewels.
Way Cool!
