The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
The item is much smaller than the pictures, there is no hook on the back and therefore no way to hang display. The wood is not nicely sanded on the edge. The mask itself is pretty, but too small for a wall or shelf.
This item was purchased as a gift for a relative that collects masks from various places he travels to. Because it is smaller than some, it added contrast to his collection. Gift was extremely well-received and very appreciated. Excellent value too!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Great color - vivid contrast
