Perfect gift for my boyfriend who collects masks. Honestly breathtaking when I first opened it after it arrived.
it is made so intricately - almost antique .... i have it in my library - but would look beautiful in any room
This mask is done in beautiful natural earth tones, yet it dazzles my vision like the Sun God it portrays! Frightening Sun God Kinich Aha emits burning rays from his tongue, mouth and square eyes, which actually appear to change to very round if you look long enough! Sort of like staring at the sun! (Dont do that) He also seems to appear to wear some sort of Divine sun goggles. Wow hes so cool, and I dont know how the artist was able to capture so many wonderful details in clay.
