I anxiously awaited this item for a couple of weeks, and was very excited when it arrived. It's beautifully carved, painted, and adorned with some metals that really make it stand out from ordinarily carved masks.
My niece is a theater professor at a University. She collects masks and when I saw this I knew I had to get it for her. She received it in time for her birthday and was so excited. It was everything I hoped it would be. She really enjoyed the hand written note from the maker and the lovely wrapping as well.
I started a wall in my home that brings up good feelings for me form my trip form South Africa and their mask had been a beautiful addition to my wall
"In 2000, I went into carving and since then I have never regretted it. But I haven't abandoned painting completely either."
