I purchased this mask for the entry way of our stairwell. My 14 year old son loves it. At first I thought it would be to long but it is just big enough to hold it's own and not over powering. I love the details on the face and the smell of the wood. It was a great buy for the price!
This mask is breath taking. If you're into Africana art, it will probably blend in well with your other pieces. I am giving this gift to my aunt: a Professor of Latin and African studies and I hope it will be a welcomed addition to her collection. She just returned from Ghana in the fall so I am sure she will appreciate it as much as I do. The craftsmanship is wonderful.
Very excited to receive item because if I liked this one i had the intension of buying a few more. The finish in the photo is beautiful but the one i received was dull brown with some gold splashed on to it. There was also a large chip on the left side, why didn't the person that wrapped this notice it? I filled in the chip with marker and it wasn't as noticeable. Now there is nothing on the back of the mask to allow you to hang it on the wall. I would not recommend this mask to anyone.
I have 7 masks in the house now and this is by far my favorite.. Something about it is just really cool. The color is darker than the light brown shown in the picture, but I prefer the actual color. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with this mask, whereas I've been disappointed with a few others.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? it's a little darker.. but better
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. well made
- How accurate was the sizing? perfect
This Hand-carved Bundu Mask (Ghana) is most unique. The artist is a genius with his creativity and a master with his skills. Not one flaw was found. I am very elated with this mask as it added another dimension to my African Art Collection. You will NOT be disappointed.
I received shippment within 2 days of order. Packaging was very good bubble wrapped and styrofoam included in box for protection. The mask had a couple of nics under the lip and nose. but you can tell it is authentic. Over all happy with my order.
I love it! The mask was darker than what is shown online, but that was ok; I actually preferred the deep rich brown color. It's bigger than I thought it would be for the price(which was a very pleasant surprise) & the curving detail is superb! My only regret is that I didn't purchase two!
The Hand-Carved Bundu Mask is a wonderful piece. It looked much better than I anticipated and has enhanced the decor of my home as well as compliment other art pieces that I have collected. I would recommend this to anyone who is into this kind of art. The price was great too.
It has a very authentic primitive look and is a nice big size. Good price for the piece. Let me add that the mask doesn't actually fit right on a face. It is too narrow and the eyeholes aren't set in the right place. Of course it is sold here just for decor, and for that purpose it is great.
I ordered one mask because of the price and the reviews, and I was not disappointed. I loved my mask so much, I ordered another one and now am using both as centerpieces on my "African Wall". It's huge! Most products ordered online come to you smaller than you expect but this mask is substantial. I love the feel and smell of the wood as well. Great buy.
This did not look like the picture. The metal (bronze) pieces were covered up in brown stain -- if you didn't see the original picture you would have never known! I did not return the mask. I painted the entire mask a black lacquer stain.
I was simply in awe when I opened up this one. The workmanship was unbelievable. I bought this as a gift but will be buying one for myself. Actually going to pick up the rest of the collection one by one. You will not be disappointed with this purchase.
