Great quality mask & love the size. Needed a few smaller masks to complete a home decor project & this one was perfect!
I purchased three amazing masks for an art wall and this is one of the amzing masks that I chose. I was so impressed when I received it - true to the on-line pictures and perfect for what I had envisioned!!! Thank you Novica and the wonderful artists who helped create this work of art!
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.

He names the pair which means "God's gift" in the Twi language. "This is my idea of fraternal twins," the Ghanaian artisan explains. "Children are truly a gift from God."
