"A beautiful reminder dee of African Art"

These masks are exquisite ! We purchased them for ourselves and our favorite young couple as special Christmas tree ornaments. They are a bit heavy for a tree but being hung has beautiful Art as a remembrance from our time in Africa.

These ornaments are beautifully made: heavier and more richly colored that the photo can show. They are unique and stunning.
