I am extremely pleased with the mask I received. The size is almost exactly as specified so it fit the planned space on my wall perfectly. The block of wood used was quite substantial so it has wonderful depth, extending from the wall about 4" with the wood itself being 2" thick or more in some places. The carving and the design on the metal bands are detailed while maintaining a rustic quality and there is just enough use of turquoise paint to give it a pop of color without being distracting. The only difference between the mask shown in the photo on the website and the one I received is the finish - the one in the photo appears to have a shiny, polished finish to the wood, mine has a dull, matte finish (which I quite like). I would definitely consider purchasing others to add to my collection of tribal art.

I have the mask with a red border, but the red is really rust. It's beautiful. The only difference between what's shown in the photos and what I have is that the back of my mask is hollowed out and hangs from a hook. On the webpage, it shows a solid back with a straight metal bar., It's larger than life, a really wellcrafted piece, and delivered in forty-eight hours! Thanks, Overstock!.

I majored in linguistics in school, so when I saw the name of this mask, I had to have it.The flash from the photo misrepresented the metalwork. It looks, in the picture, as if the metal would be silver-toned. It's brass. The metal work is really beautiful, and the shape and size of the mask are exactly what I expected. The metalwork's even better than expected. But what attracted me to this mask are the paint colors as they were represented in the photo. The colors are very bright and intense, and there is a sheen to the paint finish. In reality, the shiny red pictured is a dull matt brick . The yellow is actually a matt orangy-ochre. I will be putting this on the wall behind my sofa, which is bright orange pleather, and the pilows that I'm in the process of making for it are just as colorful.. So I'll be bringing the mask to the craft store to make sure that I get the right materials to make the paint look more like the picture.

The photo really doesn't do this mask justice. The finish has a linen-ish texture which is emphasized if you rub it with a little lemon oil. The metal on the forehead is primarily silver. The mask in the photo has a much flatter profile. The one that I received is 4.5 inches deep at the forehead, or 4 inches from the wall to the deepest part of the nose. It was packed very well, and sent really quickly, and I love it. Thanks again, Overstock!

This is a gorgeous mask. The color is a deep brown/mahagony. The facial details are very clean. The metal outline look like such of a warrior or of one with high authority. Very nice.
