"Occupies a special place in my home."

The talent on display with this mask just goes to show how much genuine skill and artistry that Novica provides on a daily basis. I cannot get enough artwork from Novica as there is only so much room in my home to exhibit it all. I would almost consider getting a bigger house just so I could furnish it with more Novica artwork (LOL)! Seriously though, thanks so much for the beautiful mask; its another cherished treasure to add to my Novica collection.
