"Beautiful addition to collection"

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.

"Incredible Artwork"

Not sure how I stumbled upon this mask in the first place but from the moment I saw it, something about it haunted me. Its beautiful. I could NOT stop thinking about it and finally caved, and Im so glad I did. The colors, the beadwork, and the craftsmanship are all incredible. This is my favorite piece of art we own, by far. I cant wait to collect more of Awudu Saaeds work.

"Perfect for placement on window shelf where the sun highlights its features."

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.
