Description

Lhasa mummer wearing a mask representing an Indian Saddhu, close-up, performing in the grounds of the British Mission residency in the Dekyi Lingka. Although Chapman refers to these masks as being made of papier mache they are more likely to have been carved from hardwood. Chapman also refers to the mummers as being very poor and this is possibly evidenced from the small portion of dress visible in this image

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
