Featured Reviews on Gifts for Mom Ghanaian
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!
It is rare to find Egyptian female masks. It is smaller than most male masks but is perfect for its size. Would like to see more Egyptian females, animal gods etc.
