Wild Woman of the Woods Mask

Artist: Charlie Johnson

Dzunukwa is the Wild Woman of the Woods. She controls the water of life and can bring back the dead by sprinkling this magic liquid on them. Her power is such that her very presence causes mortals to swoon or have nightmares. She has a hairy body, pendulous breasts, and purses her lips when she makes her cry: "uu huu uu". She has long, wild hair and wears a large basket on her back to carry away unwary children that she finds in her travels and plans to eat, but the children always manage to outwit her and escape

Carved out of yellow cedar, horse hair for hair, and painted with acrylic paint. 12 1/4" x 5" x 10 1/4"
