"Lots of detail - absolutely beautiful"

I bought this mask to give as a present but it is so beautiful, I will keep it. I usually buy mask when I travel and I have a large collection, this is one of the best made and most detailed in my collection. I will definitely buy from Awudu Saaed again. Price was amazingly reasonable and it arrived exactly on the due date.

I just received the Rhinoceros Vision carving. Very beautifully done, stunning. I love the creativity, artisanship and the homage to the rhinoceros....which I, too, feel is a fabulous critter. I will proudly display this in a most prominent place in my home. Thank you
