"Perfecta para la decoración del salón."

Ha sido una suerte dar con una máscara idéntica a la tela de los cojines del sofá. El complemento perfecto. Buena calidad, perfectamente realizada. Estaré atenta a futuras creaciones del autor. Poco a poco, a aumentar la colección de artesanía africana. Gracias.
