This is a great example of the Chunga fiber masks that the Wounaan women weave. These weavers are the same artists that make the famous Panama baskets.
This unusual mask represents a Fantasy Critter. Judging from the nose probably a monkey. But I love the purple chunga fiber so I call it a Purple People Eater.
It measures 10" X 10" overall.

These masks are wonderful wall decorations or accent pieces.
I have a number of masks so check them out in eBay stores Molamagic and Traderbrock.
Another one-of-a-kind treasure.
