"Just what i wanted"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is my 6th mask from Novica.com and just like the others, I am extremely happy with this item. I chose this one to compliment another on an accent wall across from my kitchen. I love the burgundy/red color and markings on this mask and I appreciate the artists for what they do.

"This mask is amazing"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I am in love with this mask. Its a little larger than I expected (which is a good thing). Its beautiful and so detailed. Its a powerful presence as soon as you walk into my living area and see it in the middle of the wall. The coloring is perfect, the detail is impressive... I couldnt be more satisfied.
