Beautiful colorful royal cloth
We received these colorful cotton masks and are very happy with them. They cover the nose and chin but one can still breathe. Also the royal pattern is lovely and we wear they with pride. Thank you.
A Work of Art!
This mask looks so fabulous in my home. A real eye catcher, the colors and workman ship are exceptional . To own this piece at Novica pricing is a true blessing
I was so pleased with this box. The size was a great surprise. It looks like a number of the masks I have seen. The artist should consider making a hanging version that opens and has key hooks inside. I would buy definitely buy more of his work. This is unique.
