Featured Reviews on African Wall Masks
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.
This mask is a beautiful addirion to my collection and depiction of looking at the past in order to learn for the future
This is pure art! The various woods and metals comprising the design are beautifully integrated to enhance the overall subject.
