"Maybe my best piece so far"

I hung this piece in my bedroom right next to my bed so that it is the first thing I see when I wake up in the morning, and this mask has brought a smile on my face every single day. The quality is impeccable, and there is something between the sleekness of the wood and the contrast with the hammered metal that is just perfect.

It is exactly as shown on the web site. My son now wants to purchase some. More than likely I will too.
