The mask was not what I expected. The colors of the mask were bold on the site however barely noticeable when I received the product. I would not reccomend this product to others.Read More
Perfect addition to any African collections. Quality of details were excellent.Read More
When i recieved my mask it was brown and dull with a covering that looked like stain all over it. After a scrubbing with a medium brush all the features where exposed and it looks great with a little furniture polish. A bargain with a little work.Read More
A complicated piece with incised metal strips, two cowrie shells, and strings of tiny beads (in the triangles above the eye slots). Another buyer complained that it is less colorful than what's shown in the photo, but I used a soft damp sponge and gently removed some of the stain on the beaded areas to bring out some of the colors. I may apply a matte varnish sometime in the future to emphasize the colors, or perhaps not -- I very much like the soft brown tones and the very slightly bluish rim around the mask. Wouldn't want to change them. It's the first mask I've have ever purchased. I can see now why people collect them. It's both art and artifact.Read More
I really like the craftmanship of my mask. The photo doesn't represent the mask at all. The mask photo is very colorful, but when I received my mask it was completely brown. I was a little disappointed bcause I thought it would be more colorful. They really need to take another picture to show how the mask really look. Even though it wasn't colorful I still like it. I just hope that the next mask they put on display would be a little colorful.Read More
looks great with the rest of the african masks we have on our walls. It is not quite as colorful as it looks on the internet though but still a really nice addition to our collection.Read More
