He sculpts it of sese wood.

Thank you for your artistry with this work of art you have created. This mask is absolutely gorgeous and the fine, detailed carving along with the extraordinary, vibrant colors of gold and red really accent your work of art. I have your beautiful mask displayed in my living room where I ve received many compliments. Thank you once again and I wish you all the best on your continued success.

We have numerous home decorations we bought in several African countries while visiting them. The masks are just as authentic and go well beside other African objects. Terrific.

"Amazing"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have purchased five different groups of mask decorations from different African artists and this is undoubtedly my favorite group. They are so handsome and well done. I love the use of metal on two of them and they are all painted beautifully. Many Thanks to Victor and Novica! I definitely recommend Victors work - you wont be disappointed.
