"I Absolutely Love This Piece"

I purchased this mask a couple years ago, and I am just now finally expressing my appreciation. The colors and lines of this piece are outstanding. I love how the cheeks are framed by the multicolored tassels. This mask has become one of my favorite possessions. Thank you for your work and for sharing your wonderful story. It seems that you also do truly great work for your community.
