I purchased these to hang in conjunction with solid wood masks from the same area. I love the contrast and the detailing. Well represented by the Novica picture and description. Definately recommend!
Great quality mask & love the size. Needed a few smaller masks to complete a home decor project & this one was perfect!
ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL..I loveeee my mask. The artist is wonderful and very talented. I have already put it on my wall. I cant stop looking at it... Thanks so much Mr.V. Dushie and Novica.

Handcrafted Jungle Cat Costa Rican Wood Mask, "Boruca Wild Cat"$79.99
This cat is full of character, not to mention color. Victor Hernandez hand-carves this decorative balsa wood mask in the image of a jungle cat. Brass eyelets and an agave cord are attached to the back for easy hanging.
The Boruca people live in southwestern Costa Rica. Devil masks are part of a centuries-old festival called "The Game of the Devils," honoring the Boruca's fight to defend their land from invading Spaniards. During the festival, the masked actors portray defenders fighting a bull, representing Spain. The bull is a large costume that takes about ten men to maneuver. Victor Hernandez learned the art of Boruca mask carving at the side of his father.
