This bronze mask, used in battle by the warriors advancing on foot, is a
relic from the Theyyam worshipers, of North Kerala and Malabar. It is the face
of a wild boar, in all its ferocious strength. Used in dramas and idolatry as
well, this mask has traditionally had a place both in homes as well as temples. Although it still retains its functionality
as a mask, and can be worn, it would be ideal as a center piece to a room
dedicated to antiques and artifacts of history.
