If every customer received a mask that looks identical to the one in the photo, this review would've turned out differently. But these are hand-made masks, and they're not slapped together on an assembly line. This is good to a certain extent because it allows people around the globe to share their talents and crafts with us and, hopefully, be compensated fairly. The first mask I received was not finished. Their was a chunk of wood missing from its eye, and that "V" pattern you see on its forehead was mostly incomplete. I returned it for a second mask which was much more to my liking. Yes, there were still small variations that set it apart from what I saw on Overstock's site, but it was good enough. If you order any of these masks or other products, please understand that the Overstock photo is likely a perfect example. What you receive in the mail most likely won't look like what you see online. But that's okay with me. As long as the item isn't damaged or half-worked, I'll accept the little variations and inconsistencies. I believe any item that's hand-crafted will likely exhibit these shortcomings.
This product is a nice addition to my collection of african artwork. It is as it looks in the picture, as far as the carving. The color is brighter and richer than the picture. Because of the glare on the picture, it is hard to see the detail around the nose, and the mouth is not visible. If you collect african masks, this is a nice piece to add to your collection. You will be happy you did!

I purchased a few of the Ghana masks.. This is probably my favorite. It's a great size and well made.. Color is a little darker than the picture but it's a great piece.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? A little darker brown, but better than the picture in my opinion
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Thick and well made. I was nervous it would look cheap.. It doesn't and it's awesome!
- How accurate was the sizing? very!
I just received the mask and am already in love with it. It is constructed very well and appears to be better than I anticipated. If I had to find one fault with it , would be to say that it is not as wide as I thought it would be. However, I would still give it 5 stars.
Great mask LOVE IT! I purchased this one, the Assante Royal Mask, and the Lovers Heart Mask; they are all spectacular. I would note that the color of the mask is actually a darker deeper brown than the picture shows; but I think that it was an improvement from what I had expected. All should feel free to purchase this mask you will not be disappointed.
