"Excellent piece"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this together with another African mask which I also did a review for. They hang on either side of the fireplace in our house. They are both very distinctive and make excellent decorative pieces but have that feel of handmade items. A lot of guests to our house comment on them.
