"Small Yet Impactful!"

This mask is small in size; however, it is both dramatic and impactful to any decor. The color contrast between tyhe beige and black accentuates the physical features of the face. It is a beautiful piece!

"HippoHead"

Although a nice piece, the base is not flat and so it rocks back and forth when disturbed.
