Indonesian, Scottish or Something Else ?

I realize that the above title covers quite a range and so it is evident that I don't know what I have.
At first glance, I thought that it might be Indonesian, in the style of the pre-regulation...

Papua New Guinea Bone Dagger ?

I am not very familiar with these, however, this one is even a little more unusual in the fact that it has a clay mask, feathers, hemp, and cowrie shells. It is concave in the back, so I definitely...
