I’m generally not a “head mounted on wall” kind of person but I would absolutely make an exception for this gazelle mask, which was carved with the intention of hanging on a wall.

Hand-carved from a single piece of Copal wood and painted by the Hernandez-Melchor Workshop in Oaxaca, Mexico Approx 8.5″ high x 4 wide x 2.5″ deep.
