It is another great addition to my collection of masks. The vibrant red contrasts beautifully with my golden-hued walls.

"Another Winner!"

Very striking color combination. The detail that appears looks similar to netting. This mask blends well with the Stunning-Amahle wood-mask I previously purchased.

"Dramatic Beauty!"

This is the second mask by this artist that I have purchased. This one is more petite and fits well into the artistic scheme on my Livingroom wall.
