I finally found a better pic of the mask from which, I think, this teaser was extracted:
It's a Maya ceramic mask, dated 550-950 A.C.
The Barbier-Mueller has previously published a book illustrated by short texts/poems written by Michel Butor (same texts that are represented on the dial of "Les Masques" Collection.)
Here is the short poem for this mexican mask:
"Mes narines sentent le sang
qui ruisselera sur les marches
redonnant vie à ma vieillesse
pour que je puisse distribuer
mes bénédictions sur la ville
dont les pyramides s'élèvent
au-dessus des arbres chanteurs
dans les territoires du vent"
Am I right? wait & see...
