The picture shows some details that are missing from the received item. The quality is rather poor. I have ordered another mask which was simply wonderful. This one is the opposite. I guess the masks are made by different people and thus their quality can vary.

I purchased this Boule piece because the mouth in the picture has great African quality. The mouth on the one I received is totally different, thin and angular. It is still a nice piece but, it is not what I expected and is not one of my favorites.
I did have to replace the hanger as it was leather and I am displaying this outdoors in the pool area

I ordered a few of these Ghana masks and this is my least favorite, probably because the color looks nothing like the picture. The picture looks brown, which I've looked at on 3 different monitors to make sure I'm not crazy. The mask that came is black.. As in dark black. I ordered 4 different masks anticipating a certain color scheme and this one really isn't what I expected, whereas the others are very nice. It feels well made, but looks cheap.. It looks like someone spray painted a piece of wood and place tin and copper strips on the front of it. The other masks I ordered are great, look true to the culture, but this one really bums me out.. I'll have to get them on the wall to see if it looks ok with the other 3, but at this point I would steer clear of this one.

This really is a beautiful piece. The workmanship is lovely and the attention to detail is impressive. I love the fact that Overstock provides this Worldstock service and we can directly support these talented artists. Would not hesitate to buy again.
The photo really doesn't do this mask justice. The finish has a linen-ish texture which is emphasized if you rub it with a little lemon oil. The metal on the forehead is primarily silver. The mask in the photo has a much flatter profile. The one that I received is 4.5 inches deep at the forehead, or 4 inches from the wall to the deepest part of the nose. It was packed very well, and sent really quickly, and I love it. Thanks again, Overstock!
I am happy about this purchase. The mask has a primitive, authentic look and will go great in my son's African decor bedroom. I bought three different masks from this site and they were each similarly priced. This mask was the smallest by far. The photos of the three masks would make one think that they are all about the same size, so read the dimensions carefully. This mask is much smaller for the same price, so I do regret not getting a larger one in its place. The workmanship is primitive, but that is what you would expect for this piece.
Thanks Overstock, this Mask, once again, has made me a satisfied customer. The workmanship and size go perfect with the collage on my Dining Room wall. I am proud to say that I continue to receive rave reviews from family, friends and guests about this display. Once again, thank you.
