Featured Reviews on African Bird Masks
Love the bird
this mask has a bird looking backwards. This shows that our past must be learned to forward. I totally believe we should review and learn from our past at least who we are. I am studying my genealogy and this fits perfectly in my office.
I just received this mask today. It is a gift for my husband and he is thrilled, great craftmanship and detail!
This mask is extremely well made and is just beautiful. The colors are not garish. The colors have a shade that look old, and at the same time do justice to the beauty. Its adds a lot to my collection.
