The workmanship on this mask is beautiful. My only complaint is that the color is not the same as shown in the picture. I wanted to display the mask on a brick wall, so the predominately black color shown, with red across the eyes, would have been perfect. In reality, the color is overall a reddish brown, with a lighter tone across the eyes and an ebony top. I decided to keep the mask and hang it on a different wall so that it would stand out against a lighter background, because it is a very nice piece.
We hung this piece over our dresser and it looks fantastic. I love the subtle wood background. It has subtle colors that are restful for the master bedroom. My only criticism is the hanging mechanism. There are two loops on the frame. i assume that we are supposed to put a wire across there, but it is not very obvious. We didn't have any photo wire, so we put a couple nails at the top until we can get some wire. Better instructions would be helpful.
I like the horizontal layout. It was just what I wanted. The painting on wood slats gives a nice textured look. Beautiful colors and interpretation of mountain tops.
After eyeing this piece and reading several of the reviews I was very skeptical to order this piece. It arrived and as I took out each panel I was amazed. However, the last and third panel was damaged at the top which included a cracked piece and a broken piece that was not in the box. I could only conclude that it was sent damaged. I immediately contacted customer service who was more than understanding and helpful. The replacement piece is on its way and hopefully not damaged. It's definitely worth ordering if you receive the piece not damaged. I did not experience any smell and to be honest didn't even notice if the face was opposite way. Beautiful, timeless piece.
