Central American Animal Themed Masks
Mask was on backorder so delivery took a little longer than most from Novica, but once delivered, it was definitely worth the wait. Love the attention to detail in the painted features. The colors are even more vivid than what's pictured. Looking forward to hanging it on my wall.
There is something special about this artist's work that makes his pieces such warm and lovely additions to any room. The first mask I bought was a jaguar. I immediately fell in love with the craftsmanship and care that clearly went into carving and painting it and I just knew I had to get another piece and thought a canine would compliment my felid one nicely. It is a pleasure to support such a talented artist like Mr. Ramos.
I love love love these precious hand carved wood masks! The work put into these are second to none. I?m hoping to order several more before I?m finished. Not sure that day will ever come though:)
