Featured Reviews on Gifts for Dad Culture
I was so pleased with this box. The size was a great surprise. It looks like a number of the masks I have seen. The artist should consider making a hanging version that opens and has key hooks inside. I would buy definitely buy more of his work. This is unique.
A handsome piece!
This is my second purchase from the wonderful artist Oscar Rodolfo Mendoza. He crafts powerful Mayan replicas that look authentic and are so beautiful. This three inch tall miniature mask is detailed and noble looking. I am a huge fan of Mayan and Aztec art. My only complaint is that it is difficult to hang up due to where the holes are placed. It takes patience. I finally placed it in a display cabinet with other Native American and Pre-Columbian pieces I collect.
