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

This item is true to the photo, if not better. Very lightweight, maybe 1 LB. Absolutely gorgeous. I *just* received it two days ago, so have not yet hung it, but I am absolutely thrilled with my purchase!!! Stellar.Read More
The size on mark. The color a bit dull but overall it is a good mask.Read More
This is a beautiful mask. The wood has a great red tone to it and looks rich. The workmanship is superb simple.Read More
