"Functional Art"

When I upgraded my main floor bathroom, I used the African Princess mirror as its focal point. Hence, I bought my vanity, counter top, and lights to complement the mirror. The bathroom turned out to be a remarkable room.

Gave this to my sister for her birthday and she was absolutely thrilled! She said even the packaging was gorgeous! She really likes the piece and it got there on time. Full marks to Novice and the Kiva artist who created this mask. Would definitely buy from again.
