"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.

I just received the Akan Beauty mask today and I am overwhelmed by its beauty and quality. It is even better in person than pictured and makes a very imposing statement. The details and craftsmanship are amazing. I would highly recommend this artist and plan to buy more masks in the future.

"Functional Art"

When I upgraded my main floor bathroom, I used the African Princess mirror as its focal point. Hence, I bought my vanity, counter top, and lights to complement the mirror. The bathroom turned out to be a remarkable room.
