  • Hand-finished Frafra Striped Mask (Ghana)

    I purchased the two masks separately because I knew that I'd be hanging them in narrow areas, and the only measurement given was height (21"). The deepest part is the forehead, which comes out 6.25-6.5" from the wall. I was a little disappointed when I received the first mask, because it wasn't packed well, the way Overstock always packs [with tons of shreaded fabric]. Also, it looked as if it were painted hastily and shipped wet. The stripes are painted unevenly. Portions of the white are gray-ish, and the stripes aren't well defined. (The outlines are messy, and there's white paint smudged on the black. I'm going to be redoing the paint, and making the lines crisp, because it'll be seen close up. But the carving and design are really beautiful, and I don't mind re-painting. The multi-colored mask was packed as I'd expect from Overstock and is really gorgeous . I just received this, and I ordered it less than forty-eight hours ago!!! And this is the second shipment that Overstock paid FedEx a premium to deliver on a Saturday!!! (And they don't charge me for it because I'm a Club-O member.) Thanks , Overstock! You really are the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Unique mask

    The mask was much larger than I expected, but it was spot on as to the dimensions listed on the site so my bad. Very bold wall art with the black and white contrast. It is the first piece of art that my dog has taken an interest in. I think people will do the same and either love it or hate it. Personally, we really like it.

  • Not what I was expecting but...

    This mask has a lot more yellow/light color in it than I had expected. I imagine that I can find a place for it but when placed where I had intended, it looks ugly. Also the "earrings" are not attractive.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Not really.

  • READ THE DIMENSIONS!

    Gorgeous! Dramatic! LARGE! I purchased both masks and it definitely required a change in plans when i opened the boxes and discovered they were almost 2 feet in length. That's what happens when you're in 'buy' mode and don't pay attention to the small details. Hung them at an angle side by side on a plain white wall and they're beautiful, so all is well.
