Mask - Dzunukwa

Artist: Charlie Johnson

Dzunukwa is the Wild Woman of the Woods. She controls the water of life and can bring back the dead. Her power is such that her very presence causes mortals to swoon or have nightmares. She has a hairy body and purses her lips when she makes her cry. She has long wild hair and wears a larger basket on her back to carry away children that she plans to eat, but the children always manage to outwit her and escape.
 
This phenomenal Dzunukwa mask is hand carved and hand painted by Kwagiulth First Nation artist Charlie Johnson.
This piece is hand carved from red cedar, hand painted with acrylic paint and accented with white horse hair.
Measurements: 15 1/4" x 12" x 6"
