    I have a collection of antique African & Caribbean masks, and this new addition fits right in most handsomely. He reigns in my dining room with fierce regalness.

    Absolutely astounding

    I just received the "Akan Beauty" mask today and I am overwhelmed by its beauty and quality. It is even better in person than pictured and makes a very imposing statement. The details and craftsmanship are amazing. I would highly recommend this artist and plan to buy more masks in the future.

    A gorgeous piece...just the right size. I have a wall of masks and this one is the center mask. Love it! Will order from this artist again.

    Prized possession

    Posted by Pamela on Feb 20th 2017

    I bought this mask several years ago. It is my most prized mask. The artist did a fantastic job. I would highly recommend her work and this mask. It is larger than most, which is one thing I really liked. Gorgeous. I can't say enough good comments about it.

    Excellent piece

    I bought this together with another African mask which I also did a review for. They hang on either side of the fireplace in our house. They are both very distinctive and make excellent decorative pieces but have that feel of handmade items. A lot of guests to our house comment on them.
