Beautiful addition to collection
This is so beautiful and just the right size. It fills out our collection nicely and with depth and texture. I was looking for something smaller to balance out the larger pieces and this was perfect. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the metal overlay.
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.
