"Beautiful addition to collection"

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.

"Better than expected."

I have a large collection of masks from all over the world. This one is a beautiful addition. Unique and well made. Very detailed when you can hold it in your hands. Perhaps not a traditional style, but very artistic.

"Happy"

At first, this piece didn t stand out the way I had hoped. After looking closer to the detailing and the structure it started to grow on me. HAPPINESS is a wonderful addition to my accent wall.

This mask is one of the most stunning pieces of art that I have ever had the privilege to own!!! I know I always leave positive reviews as you could see from my profile but this time I am ABSOLUTELY floored!!! I am so happy with it!!! Just a striking, original and fantastic mask. I am so in awe. I love masks and try to restrain myself so I dont have a house full of masks but this one just haunted me until I bought it and I just love it. Thanks so much, Novica!!! Never disappoints!!!
