Kali mask. Frontal view, the mask  has been partially repainted on the side of the  mouth of the eyes and of the eyebrows.  In the rest of the surface there are traces of the old polychromy on  wood. Common practice in the Terai area is repainting old masks with vivid industrial colors. This mask bears witness to this custom only halfway
