The top, sides and back of the head are covered with long orange/red hair that is possibly the skin of a patas monkey.
The snout is covered with short black fur,species unknown.
The teeth have been very carefully carved and painted white while the gums have been painted red.
String is fastened around the neck of the mask which would have been used for tying a form of cape to the mask.
