I majored in linguistics in school, so when I saw the name of this mask, I had to have it.The flash from the photo misrepresented the metalwork. It looks, in the picture, as if the metal would be silver-toned. It's brass. The metal work is really beautiful, and the shape and size of the mask are exactly what I expected. The metalwork's even better than expected. But what attracted me to this mask are the paint colors as they were represented in the photo. The colors are very bright and intense, and there is a sheen to the paint finish. In reality, the shiny red pictured is a dull matt brick . The yellow is actually a matt orangy-ochre. I will be putting this on the wall behind my sofa, which is bright orange pleather, and the pilows that I'm in the process of making for it are just as colorful.. So I'll be bringing the mask to the craft store to make sure that I get the right materials to make the paint look more like the picture.
