Greet the day with an ancient smile. This copper decorative table-top mask statuette designed by Ana Maria Enciso of Peru is inspired by ceremonial masks of the cultures indigenous to the Amazon region. The bronze and polished copper accents used for the facial features contrast beautifully with the oxidized copper face. The same face is on both sides, with solid bronze flowers on one side and red-centered flowers on the other. The mask stands on brass rods on a jasper base.
