Hello, I recently purchased the ceramic mask entitled Picasso. Wow! I have to say that this is a beautiful piece. To the untrained eye this probably would look very mundane. However, because of my appreciate for art I can fully see why you chose this face, the materials and the paint. Thank you for sharing your visions.

Such a beautiful African clay mask. The mask is such that it looks like an owl person, and I look at it as though it would speak to me...It has life to it. Superb. Many thanks.
