"Well Done"

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!

"Great Set"

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!

"Nice grouping of small masks."

My brother loves the details of the masks and they will go with his collection. They are actually hand size and just right for a mantle or to fill in a small space, even place them in a shadow box.

"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.
