My mask arrived in a very timely manner. The carved mask is beautifully carved and is perfect for my decor.


Dear Eric, I received my mask yesterday and I love it! It is exactly what I wanted. Really nicely done! Thank you for brightening my day!
I was hoping that the mask would not look almost as gold as it looked in the image. But when i received it, it looked very neutral in tone which is what i wanted. Great workmanship. Now on to shadow box framing it... Eric me da woase from your home girl.... :)
