Bak'Was Mask

Availability: In stock (2)

The Tsonokwa Mask is representative of the traditional Pacific Northwest legend "wild woman of the woods". It is said that if children foolishly wander into the forest, the Tsnonokwa will capture them and eat them. Fortunately, she is not considered to be very bright, and usually, the children are able to outsmart her and escape. 

The Bak'was is representative of the "wild man of the woods". He lives in the country of ghosts and is the Chief of Woodsmen and keeper of drowned souls. It is usual to see Bak'was but be careful if you do because it is said he will entice you into his world by offering food. Generally, he is shy and afraid of humans.

This story mask is made of recycled glass and was carved by west coast artist Mark Garfield.
