"Happy"

At first, this piece didn t stand out the way I had hoped. After looking closer to the detailing and the structure it started to grow on me. HAPPINESS is a wonderful addition to my accent wall.

This mask is one of the most stunning pieces of art that I have ever had the privilege to own!!! I know I always leave positive reviews as you could see from my profile but this time I am ABSOLUTELY floored!!! I am so happy with it!!! Just a striking, original and fantastic mask. I am so in awe. I love masks and try to restrain myself so I dont have a house full of masks but this one just haunted me until I bought it and I just love it. Thanks so much, Novica!!! Never disappoints!!!

"Nice grouping of small masks."

My brother loves the details of the masks and they will go with his collection. They are actually hand size and just right for a mantle or to fill in a small space, even place them in a shadow box.

"Incredible details!"

The details are so precise from the hatch marks to the hammered metal and the gentle shading from green to black in the middle. This is truly a work of art! I love it!
