"Very Unusal"

This is a very unique and well made mask, love the various textures used by the artist. The weight of this piece is very substantial. The name given by the artist appealed to me as an individual.

"Great colorful wall art."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

We needed something to fill a narrow wall space in the great room. Took a chance on purchasing this mask because of the size and colors. We were definitely not disappointed! The size, colors, etc were exactly as depicted on the website. Definitely recommend the piece and the artist. Would buy it again! It also arrived ahead of scheduled date!

"Joy At The Harvest"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Very large in size and such a beautiful mask. The photo shows that there is a bright yellow paint added underneath the eyes as well as on the upper lip...This is not the case because there is NO yellow on the mask like I had hoped it would be but actually has a Tanish/Muddy color which is still great. This mask is worth the price and is really beautiful!
