Excellent decorative masks.

Masks look great on my wall. Painting on the masks is not perfect, but it looks handmade & not made by a machine. The shape of the face and colors define the masks. Hard to hang on the wall because the mask edges are rounded. I used hanging tape and clear push pins to support the masks in an upright position against a wall. Medium size masks that compliment one another in terms of male, female pairing, with subtle distinctions. These serve as symbols of protection & ceremony over an entranceway. Nature and an exotic edge are provided for display in any medium to large room. Definitely authentic.

Artistry, care, and cultural expression in these Masks.

All masks are wonderful, authentic in appearance. Can scratch easily, so be cautious when hanging. I used mounting two-sided tape reinforced with two clear, transparent push pins near the chins. Great care went into the making of the masks. The facial expressions and colors make these masks special; in comparison to other African masks I have viewed [cultural authenticity vs. a more commercial, mass produced appearance]. They add character to my wall. The seller understood my expressed artistic preferences (via email). I fully utilized everything she provided in the package except the screws. Utilitarian and cultural. This seller is responsive; if you prefer to have masks sent with different colors and expressions she will work with you. Beautiful with any of the choices.

Exactly what I want

The mask was beautiful, I was expecting much smaller due the reviews but it was just the right size. The only thing I didn’t like is that tent put the hook to hang it right in front of the mask, I removed and replaced in the back, and it was perfect!!

Cool looking masks.

The masks were kind of small , however they looked fantastic and go very well with the rest of my masks. The hanging hooks were all in the bag that the masks came in.. definitely worth the price in my opinion.
