"Thanks to my daughter"

When I saw this fine mask I had to buy it for my daughter who went for a number of years to Africa with a medical mission group. She loves it and expressed how great the quality is and the beading sets it off.

This mask is absolutely stunning. The metal work and beadwork is immaculate, and symbolism is so strong. I would definitely buy from this artist again! Cannot recommend this enough, especially if you love African masks.
