"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.

This mask is one of the most stunning pieces of art that I have ever had the privilege to own!!! I know I always leave positive reviews as you could see from my profile but this time I am ABSOLUTELY floored!!! I am so happy with it!!! Just a striking, original and fantastic mask. I am so in awe. I love masks and try to restrain myself so I dont have a house full of masks but this one just haunted me until I bought it and I just love it. Thanks so much, Novica!!! Never disappoints!!!

"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.
