I had the benefit of the prior reviews to read before purchasing this mask so was not surprised at all when the mask arrived and it was completely brown with no color as the other buyers stated. I was fine with that before purchasing because it matches the other decor it is being hung with. If there is anyone who really wants the color I would suggest purchasing something else. Aside from that the mask arrived as represented and we are very happy with it. It has unique designs on different sections of the mask and the lower portion triangles are actually some kind of metal on top of the wood. Shipping was very fast and the packing was excellent.
