Featured Reviews on Animal Themed Masks
I absolutely love my Dragon Scream. It is even more impressive in person (of course) and could not be more beautiful. I love the expression and the painting is stellar. Its helped to move me a bit closer to being a dragon collector of sorts. I highly recommend this amazing artists work. I am quite sure you will be as pleased as I am!
I have purchased a number of these beautifully carved and painted masks and I am so pleased with Mr. Gleeful. He exudes exactly the happy sentiment that I needed to add and I smile every time I see him. Such wonderful artistry. I am sure you would love him as much as I do!
She is Beautiful
The artistry is exceptional. The queen is a beauty and the artistry in the painting is even more impressive in person. I love elephants and beauty in general and could not be more pleased. Absolutely recommend the Queen of Elephants to anyone with similar tastes - you will not be disappointed!

"Most of the time I work with the idea of something, rather than with its photo, because I feel it hampers my inspiration and then I'm not happy with the final product."
