I love all the amazing details in the mask
Absolutely beautiful and Very well made. Looks beautiful on my wall next to my waterfall painting from Zimbabwe.
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.
The details are so precise from the hatch marks to the hammered metal and the gentle shading from green to black in the middle. This is truly a work of art! I love it!

"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."
