"Beautiful addition to collection"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is so beautiful and just the right size. It fills out our collection nicely and with depth and texture. I was looking for something smaller to balance out the larger pieces and this was perfect. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the metal overlay.

"Another beauty for my collection"

I bought this mask to give as a present but it is so beautiful, I will keep it. I usually buy mask when I travel and I have a large collection, this is one of the best made and most detailed in my collection. I will definitely buy from Awudu Saaed again. Price was amazingly reasonable and it arrived exactly on the due date.

"Very nice mask"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

We have a large selection of masks and love the texture of this one. It is made of wood with detailed aluminum covering the base. It is well made and will be a great addition to our other masks. It is called Mbara Hunter which truly fits the mask.

This is a beautifully carved and painted fish. Very nice detail and stands on its own on a shelf where the sun shines that brings out its nicely detail features.

I gave this mask to my twenty year old nephew for Christmas. The carving and beadwork are absolutely exquisite, and it is something my nephew is grateful to have and proud to display. Mr. Saaed has crossed an ocean to give my nephew a gift he will treasure forever. Thank you for your artistry!
