When I saw this fine mask I had to buy it for my daughter who went for a number of years to Africa with a medical mission group. She loves it and expressed how great the quality is and the beading sets it off.
There is no mistake the mask is handmade. But, it also looks like it was created by an artist who knew what he was doing..
The pieces arrived beautifully wrapped, however the true treasure was inside. The detail on each mask was awe-inspiring. You could tell that the artist took painstaking care into crafting each mask. I am in awe of such talent. The masks look beautiful on my wall. The insert containing information about the artist was a nice touch as well.
"In 2000, I went into carving and since then I have never regretted it. But I haven't abandoned painting completely either."
