"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"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.

I purchased these to hang in conjunction with solid wood masks from the same area. I love the contrast and the detailing. Well represented by the Novica picture and description. Definately recommend!

These are each a little different and go together beautifully. I looked for a long time for just the right thing to go in that spot and these fit the bill perfectly. So glad to find them on Novica and support one of the awesome artist around the world!

"Love the bird"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

this mask has a bird looking backwards. This shows that our past must be learned to forward. I totally believe we should review and learn from our past at least who we are. I am studying my genealogy and this fits perfectly in my office.
