"The best gift received"

I was given this set of mask for a Christmas gift from my sister Heather. I screamed with so much excitement. Although they arrived after Christmas, I look forward to decorating my tree next year with them. The unique craftsmanship is mind boggling. Impressively beautiful and colorful. The sizing of each mask is the perfect size, being about the size of a large Christmas ball. I have placed for more to be added to the wishlist, wanting to have last 5 more sets. When I informed my dear friend about the gift, Kathy immediately was also interested in wanting a set or two. I'm looking forward to seeing what's next from this magnificent craftsman.

I just wanted to personal Thank You for my beautiful masks. Your passion and love in your work shows through the detail of your artistry.



I am very pleased with my purchase of the Good Fortune sculptures. The workmanship is amazing. I have them prominently displayed in my home for all to see!

My ""Dog of the Spirit World"" carving is a beautifully crafted piece, it's one of my favorite Novica purchases. I was worried about the long ears and tail surviving the journey from Africa to Texas but it was so carefully packed I think it could have survived a trip to the moon!
