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.

I gave this mask to my twenty year old nephew for Christmas. The carving and beadwork are absolutely exquisite, and it is something my nephew is grateful to have and proud to display. Mr. Saaed has crossed an ocean to give my nephew a gift he will treasure forever. Thank you for your artistry!
