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!!!
This stunning mask greets my visitors.
I put this mask in my foyer next to a vase and palm leaves. It sets the tone for a house full of interesting artifacts. I love the bright colors and interesting designs of this mask. The warrior with the jaguar mask on his head tells a story of strength and courage.
Really lovely work, excellent pieces, wonderful!
Purchased three piece & each piece is truly a work of art. Beautiful clear finish with nice wood grain, the carving detail is wonderful. All the pieces arrive quickly & the boxes were so well packaged. Equally the package came with a totally wonder ribbon with a sweet ornament, just really super. I could not be more please with the purchase.
