"Beautiful, unusual mask!"

Beautiful, unusual mask! I have a lot of masks in my collection, but this is the first mask that combined a wooden carved mask with a very colorful, handwoven raffia fiber head piece. I havent seen anything like this. It will look fantastic hanging on my wall. Truly an artist at what he does!

"Very Cool"

The woven headdress really sets this mask apart from others. The head portion is small so make sure to look at the product dimensions.
