Present for my husband, and he was very impressed with the talent and artistry. I love the colors and designs.
I have a few other Huichol items and the one thing that struck me about the mask is how sturdy it is. The mask that the beads are mounted on is very hard and not a single bead fell out when removing the packaging or hanging the mask. My other Huichol sculptures are so delicate that they cannot be handled at all without losing a bead or two.
The eyes and mouth are not white. They are actually openings like a mask would have. The workmanship is beautiful.
