The artisan behind ...Fadal is a Senegal-born artisan living in Montreal. The beauty, the delicacy and the quality of his work has earned him general praise as well as a rare municipal permit to sell his products on Montreal streets.
Taller and heavier than I expected, this mask is fascinating, well carved, great finish. A beautiful addition to our collection.
