I have a few other Huichol items and the one thing that struck me about the mask is how sturdy it is. The mask that the beads are mounted on is very hard and not a single bead fell out when removing the packaging or hanging the mask. My other Huichol sculptures are so delicate that they cannot be handled at all without losing a bead or two.
Amazing craftsmanship, hopefully it will grace my wall for many years to come...with luck I'll get another mask by Angel someday.
Received the mask a couple of days ago... LOVE IT! The detail is true to form. Great addition to my bookcase!
