Antique Thai Khon Mask - Garuda, Phya Suban
Antique Thai Khon Mask - Garuda, Phya Suban.
A really stunning original Thai antique Khon Mask of Garuda, known in Thai khon as Phya Suban. He is a humanoid mythological bird and God of all birds. He serves as the mount of Phra Narai (Vishnu).
This is a rare and special mask, as used in traditional Thai khon performance. Thai people would treat a mask like this with the utmost respect. Beautifully made and still looks stunning.
In very good condition overall. Some minor wear and ageing as would be expected - see photos, but a really interesting and attractive piece.
Supplied with simple Thai stand. A wonderful object.
