"Beautiful Mask"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This colorful mask looks beautiful next to the others I have. It is a little heavier than I expected, but it is made to be displayed. It is worth the money. The leather on the back (used for hanging it) was off center but the weight of the mask makes it firmly stay in the position you put it in on the wall, so it was not a problem. Thanks for your hard work in making it, Abdul Karim Star!

"Unusual Leather Covered Box"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This box is exquisite! The craftsmanship is superb and I honestly believe it has a soul. I consider it to be among my favorite art pieces and I love it. At the moment I have a cloth with drops of cypress oil tucked inside for the leather to take on its exotic scent. I havent decided what to keep in it yet, but it will be something I use every day so I can touch it and feel it on a regular basis. I am so happy to have it!
