Mexican Wall Masks
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.
Received the mask a couple of days ago... LOVE IT! The detail is true to form. Great addition to my bookcase!
My stepson and his wife honeymooned in Mexico two years ago, and they went back last year for their first anniversary. Work obligations kept them from making it back this year, so we thought we'd send a present that would bring a bit of Mexico to them. They absolutely raved about this mask! They are both artists who appreciate beautiful work. And it arrived in a very timely manner, too.
