This mask holds a special place with me because it was among the first good masks I acquired when I started
collecting. I love the lines of the mask and I especially enjoy the wide bands of color on the mask. It is shown on a
stand, but the stand is not made for this mask and it's a stand I no longer have. If you're interested in this mask
and would like a stand, I'll work with my stand maker to fabricate one for you at no additional cost. I've always had
this mask hanging on the wall so I've never had a stand made for it.
