"A Stand-out!"

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"

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.

"Perfect for placement on window shelf where the sun highlights its features."

This is a beautifully carved and painted fish. Very nice detail and stands on its own on a shelf where the sun shines that brings out its nicely detail features.

"This is now a cherished Christmas heirloom"

I gave this mask to my twenty year old nephew for Christmas. The carving and beadwork are absolutely exquisite, and it is something my nephew is grateful to have and proud to display. Mr. Saaed has crossed an ocean to give my nephew a gift he will treasure forever. Thank you for your artistry!
