Featured Reviews on African Masks
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.
Exisite piece for my new home
