Maya Wood Masks
This mask is absolutely gorgeous. It is my new favorite mask. (The photograph doesn?t do it justice. The mask is a much lighter orange than what is shown). I now have a collection of six of the artist?s masks and I love them all.
When I opened the package, my first reaction was WOW! I am used to being somewhat disappointed with many items I order on line, but the Maya King of Tikal jade mask. It really is museum quality - perfect. I've been to Tikal and this is the perfect reminder of that visit. Ruben and Gilda Perez are true masters of their art and this mask is a masterpiece.
The mask is beautiful online. But when we saw the mask in-person, it was even more impressive. The mask is substantial. It is beautifully carved and painted. The colors are more saturated than they look online. It was a gift for my husband, and he practically gasped when he looked at it (so did I)!
"Our parents taught us the value of hard work and that art is an expression of culture. This is an invaluable gift. We are also inspired by our own children."
