"Very Powerful Piece of Craftsmanship"

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.

These are each a little different and go together beautifully. I looked for a long time for just the right thing to go in that spot and these fit the bill perfectly. So glad to find them on Novica and support one of the awesome artist around the world!
