It looks more expensive "in person", it has very distinct style and character, I thought the workmanship was real great. The only bad thing about it was the hanging loop on the back - it is made out of fake leather that is nailed to the wood. After hanging on my wall for a week it stretched so much it started showing on the top of the mask, and I couldn`t get it first why my mask is seemingly hanging much lower than I originally place it. It (the loop) also became very thin so I had to replace it with a piece of a leather shoe-lace, and I was afraid of nailing it thinking I could split the wood. It went well, though and I keep enjoying my new african art very much.
