Simple, but fabulous
I needed something smaller to fill a certain space on my wall (with a collection of 6 other round masks). This one fit in perfectly & I loved the lighter wood, with metal accents. Super quality, as all masks from Novica are!
Fun, happy modern Mask
Large, bright, but soft colors in a modern mask. Goes great with all my abstract art and my other tribal pieces.

"In 2000, I went into carving and since then I have never regretted it. But I haven't abandoned painting completely either."
