  • Great mask
    Verified Purchase

    This mask looks great in person, but the colors are very different than the stock photos. The red is not nearly that bright, but darker and more brownish. The "ring" area around the mask is a flat black color. The main body is a lighter brown color and not that dark "wedge" brown as shown in the photo. The actual carvings are less detailed than depicted. The "ring" around the mask has straight lines carved in it, whereas the photo appears to have a more intricate pattern. The detail of the head piece and nose, is much nicer, and better tooled, than what you will receive. I would have preferred getting those extra carved details you see in the photos. With all that said, I do however, like this mask quite a bit. The shape is great and it works well for what I needed......oh and the price is unbeatable.

    Verified Purchase

    In the photos this item has a worn, weathered, authentic look. The mask I received looked brand new, glossy, and strangest of all, something in the manufacturing process clearly uses newspaper, as the mask is covered in faint newsprint ... not exactly the authentic tribal look I was going for.

    A very average piece. Average design, average workmanship and average appeal. Keep looking and you'll find better

    I just received this mask and it's absolutely stunning! It fits in perfectly with my collection of mask on my exposed brick wall. I actually think it looks even better in person.
