Featured Reviews on Animal Themed Masks
I absolutely love my Dragon Scream. It is even more impressive in person (of course) and could not be more beautiful. I love the expression and the painting is stellar. Its helped to move me a bit closer to being a dragon collector of sorts. I highly recommend this amazing artists work. I am quite sure you will be as pleased as I am!
I have purchased a number of these beautifully carved and painted masks and I am so pleased with Mr. Gleeful. He exudes exactly the happy sentiment that I needed to add and I smile every time I see him. Such wonderful artistry. I am sure you would love him as much as I do!
She is Beautiful
The artistry is exceptional. The queen is a beauty and the artistry in the painting is even more impressive in person. I love elephants and beauty in general and could not be more pleased. Absolutely recommend the Queen of Elephants to anyone with similar tastes - you will not be disappointed!

Handcrafted Jungle Cat Costa Rican Wood Mask, "Boruca Wild Cat"$84.99
This cat is full of character, not to mention color. Victor Hernandez hand-carves this decorative balsa wood mask in the image of a jungle cat. Brass eyelets and an agave cord are attached to the back for easy hanging.
The Boruca people live in southwestern Costa Rica. Devil masks are part of a centuries-old festival called "The Game of the Devils," honoring the Boruca's fight to defend their land from invading Spaniards. During the festival, the masked actors portray defenders fighting a bull, representing Spain. The bull is a large costume that takes about ten men to maneuver. Victor Hernandez learned the art of Boruca mask carving at the side of his father.
Hand Painted Ceramic Mayan Turtle Mask from Mexico, "Sun and Moon Tortoise"$47.99
Depicting a Mayan myth from ancient times, this ceramic mask from Mexico features hand-painted designs that are full of life, presented by artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association. Included in the mask is the myth of the tortoise, which says that during the destruction of the world, the sun and the moon both fled beneath the shell of a tortoise, which saved their lives.
