"A Stand-out!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.

"Lots of detail - absolutely beautiful"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this mask to give as a present but it is so beautiful, I will keep it. I usually buy mask when I travel and I have a large collection, this is one of the best made and most detailed in my collection. I will definitely buy from Awudu Saaed again. Price was amazingly reasonable and it arrived exactly on the due date.

"Very Powerful Piece of Craftsmanship"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This mask is absolutely stunning. The metal work and beadwork is immaculate, and symbolism is so strong. I would definitely buy from this artist again! Cannot recommend this enough, especially if you love African masks.
