This is a large mask with a wide brim. The face may represent a bird's body, with the nose carved as the bird's head. The peculiar faces painted on the forehead and chin are surprising. They seem to have wings, with round black eyes, an arrow pointing down for the nose, and a small smiling mouth. There is a heart shape in the center of the forehead.
Overall, the main color is a rusty orange. The large oval eyes are ringed with black, white, yellow and orange, with tiny operculum shells as pupils.
