Featured Reviews on Fall Brown Masks
Nicer than I ever anticipated it to be - great size, color, detail & overall quality. Very impressed with this mask, so I bought 3 more round masks!
So much detail & texture - its amazing! Not your average round mask; multi-colored wood, metal; extra piece at the top. I have had compliments from many friends & will probably buy another, as a gift for someone.
Simple, but fabulous
I needed something smaller to fill a certain space on my wall (with a collection of 6 other round masks). This one fit in perfectly & I loved the lighter wood, with metal accents. Super quality, as all masks from Novica are!
Popular Fall Brown Masks
Balinese Eagle Mask, "Garuda the Eagle"$129.99
Garuda is a mythical, gigantic eagle-like bird. On a level comparable to that of the gods and their infinite might, Garuda was designated Lord Vishnu's vehicle for traveling between heaven and earth. Carved by hand from acacia wood, this splendid mask is the work of Made Mulyani.
Please note that wood color and grain can vary significantly from one piece to the next; this makes each mask a unique piece of art.
Original African Tribal Dance Mask Crafted in Wood and Metal, "Frafra Dancer"$79.99
Awudu Saaed is inspired by the art and customs of the Frafra people for the design of this extraordinary mask. Known also as Fare-fare, they reside in northern Ghana and southern Burkina Faso. In Saaed's original mask design, the antiqued sese wood mask features a jute beard around the proud visage, and diagonal ridges on the crown representing braided hair. Magnificently embossed aluminum adorns the forehead and cheeks representing tribal markings.
Nigerian Wood Mask, "Harvest Joy"
A serious expression belies the joy of an abundant harvest. Carved and painted by hand, this handsome mask comes from Abdul Aziz Mohamadu. "It is used by the Chamba people of Nigeria during the Chambalare festival, which celebrates the end of the hunger suffered in the olden days," he says. "Farmers wear the mask to remember the days of severe hunger. Although the festival is joyous and filled with merrymaking, the sight of this mask reminds people to keep their crops well and waste nothing." He names this piece a Hausa word meaning "Worried."
