"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.

I purchased these to hang in conjunction with solid wood masks from the same area. I love the contrast and the detailing. Well represented by the Novica picture and description. Definately recommend!

"Great Set"

These are each a little different and go together beautifully. I looked for a long time for just the right thing to go in that spot and these fit the bill perfectly. So glad to find them on Novica and support one of the awesome artist around the world!
