I received the Zebra mask in a large cardboard box wrapped with brown shipping paper, once opened I was disappointed in the size, really expecting it to be a little larger. I think it is beautiful and well crafted! I do not mind the few inconsistencies in the carving itself as it lends to the hand carved charm! It will be a perfect addition to my master bedrooms decor!!! I like it so well I am ordering the giraffe :)
not made as nicely as the giraffe...the ears aren't level and the mask was missing the string to hang it by..the colors are okay but not white and black like a zebra..the mask is more yellow than white
What wood is this mask carved from? Does anyone know the answer? I made a hanger of my own for the mask by screwing in a small bolt on the sides in the back, put a piece of wire between the bolts, and hung it up. Just need to KIND of wood it's made from.

Hello farside3, similar masks are made from pale jacaranda wood. These hand-crafted pieces can also be made of olive wood, mahogany, and mpingo. I hope this information helps. Thank you for shopping with us. -D.B.overstockcustomercare2 on Feb 15, 2015
Does this mask have hanging hardware attached? I noticed some reviewers said it did not. How would you suggest hanging this?bubbles0088 on Oct 29, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us, bubbles0088. The item does not come with hardware for hanging, only two small holes at the top. To use the holes at the top, a piece of wire, twine, string, etc., can be looped through them for hanging if you desire to do so. It will also just simply rest on a nail in the wall without using any hardware. Hope that helps!

It has 2 little holes in the top. You thread some string or wire through the holes to make a loop for hanging.connieinfl on Nov 2, 2014
