Details

Framed by the open mouth of a fierce jaguar, the face of a Mayan warrior is depicted in this mask from Guatemala. Jose Canil Ramos designs this stunning mask, which is carved by hand from pinewood. One half of the warrior's face is a skull, a nod to the more grisly consequences of war.

"Museum Quality Jaguar Warrior"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I received Face of a Warrior today and truly love it. Jose Canil Ramos is a very talented artist. This mask will have a prominent place in my house and will be greatly admired by everyone who lays eyes on it. There are scores of jaguar warriors out there created by some very talented artists. I have another jaguar warrior mask, which I also love, but this mask is more dramatic and compelling. When I saw it, I had to have it. Kudos to a skillful and talented carver!

"Beautiful! Rejoice nativity scene"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Wow wow wow! I received the nativity yesterday and I love it more than I thought I would (and I had high hopes). It is beautiful and well made. Each piece is small enough to separately fit in my hand and together they fill the space I have created for them just right. Thank you so much! I am very glad that I discovered Novica.

"The most beautiful wooden figure ever!!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I was so happy and excited when o opened the box and saw how gorgeous this St. Francis figure is. I not only loved the carving work on St. Francis and his animals but also the beautiful and colourful art captured in the wooden statue. I wish I could give him more than 5 stars for it!! Many thanks to José for my beautiful St. Francis!! It is now standing right next to the Jesus figure he made for me years ago ??
