This mask looks great in person, but the colors are very different than the stock photos. The red is not nearly that bright, but darker and more brownish. The "ring" area around the mask is a flat black color. The main body is a lighter brown color and not that dark "wedge" brown as shown in the photo. The actual carvings are less detailed than depicted. The "ring" around the mask has straight lines carved in it, whereas the photo appears to have a more intricate pattern. The detail of the head piece and nose, is much nicer, and better tooled, than what you will receive. I would have preferred getting those extra carved details you see in the photos. With all that said, I do however, like this mask quite a bit. The shape is great and it works well for what I needed......oh and the price is unbeatable.
In the photos this item has a worn, weathered, authentic look. The mask I received looked brand new, glossy, and strangest of all, something in the manufacturing process clearly uses newspaper, as the mask is covered in faint newsprint ... not exactly the authentic tribal look I was going for.
A very average piece. Average design, average workmanship and average appeal. Keep looking and you'll find better

The mask is great, but unfortunately not as pictured. The colors are definitely on a much lighter side and the details shown around the mask are not there. Nevertheless, we are keeping as it still looks good on the wall, just not quiet as pictured. We have an extensive collection of african art and this item completes one of our walls.

Everytime I purchase a product from Overstock.com, I am never disappointed and it is no exception here. This mask was bought for my mother's birthday (she is an avid wild bird feeding lady!). She absolutley LOVED it! It would make a wonderful additon to any ecletic home. Of course, I received email updates on the delivery status of my order & it arrived in a timely manner. I also like the fact that by purchasing this product, I participated in the Fair Trade Act.
