This mask is a great addition to my wall of African art. It?s obvious that such care and dedication goes into the creation of these masks. I am so glad I found the Novica site for purchasing my treasures!

the mask has a dynamic presence in my home. I love the bright color as well as a symbol of two diamonds for lessons to be taught.

"Love the bird"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

this mask has a bird looking backwards. This shows that our past must be learned to forward. I totally believe we should review and learn from our past at least who we are. I am studying my genealogy and this fits perfectly in my office.

"Beautiful addition to collection"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is so beautiful and just the right size. It fills out our collection nicely and with depth and texture. I was looking for something smaller to balance out the larger pieces and this was perfect. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the metal overlay.
