"Decorative Hausa Monkey Mask"

I anxiously awaited this item for a couple of weeks, and was very excited when it arrived. Its beautifully carved, painted, and adorned with some metals that really make it stand out from ordinarily carved masks.

"I gave this away"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This looked nice in the picture, but the piece itself looked scary. In profile, this zebra has a mouth full of white teeth as if its grinning. The detail work on the front of the face was beautiful, but the paint on the eyes was very sloppy and they looked strange, like goats eyes. I thought about repainting it, but I was honestly unnerved by it when I unwrapped it, and put it in the utility room in my building so someone else could have it if they wanted.
