- Main article: Dragon Priest Mask
The Wooden Mask is a dragon priest mask found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
It can be accessed by simply entering the barrow and following the path around. The mask is near some skeletal remains and a missive.
The wooden mask is unlike the other dragon priest masks. Its purpose is to gain access to the dragon priest shrine.
Wearing the wooden mask within the barrow sends its wearer back to a time before the destruction of Bromjunaar Sanctuary. The central focus of the sanctuary is the restored shrine. It should be noted that the restored shrine is only accessible by wearing the wooden mask within the barrow.
The dragon priest shrine contains the busts of eight dragon priests found in Skyrim. Any dragon priests who had been defeated will drop the mask that they wore. These masks can be displayed on its respective bust on the shrine.
A bust is available for the following masks:
- Volsung's Bust (see Volsung, Volsung Mask)
- Vokun's Bust (see Vokun, Vokun Mask)
- Otar's Bust (see Otar, Otar Mask)
- Morokei's Bust (see Morokei, Morokei Mask)
- Rahgot's Bust (see Rahgot,Rahgot Mask)
- Nahkriin's Bust (see Nahkriin, Nahkriin Mask)
- Hevnoraak's Bust (see Hevnoraak, Hevnoraak Mask)
- Krosis' Bust (see Krosis, Krosis Mask)
Once the eight masks are placed in each respective bust on the shrine, the final mask Konahrik is revealed. The other masks may be taken from the shrine once Konahrik is obtained.
Despite the enchantment being described as "The wooden mask hums with an unfamiliar energy," this has no actual effect.
