Nice grouping of small masks.
My brother loves the details of the masks and they will go with his collection. They are actually hand size and just right for a mantle or to fill in a small space, even place them in a shadow box.
A Welcomed and Wonderful Addition to My Home
This is such a well crafted, highly aesthetic work! It showcases well with my other pieces and is surprisingly affordable given the quality of workmanship and materials. 5 star item!
Not too long ago I bought this mask for my brother for his birthday. He has collected many hand crafted masks over the years but this one really stands out. This is the only one he has with beads on it...it?s both unique and beautiful! I am very happy with this purchase.
