    So Happy!

    I have purchased a number of these beautifully carved and painted masks and I am so pleased with Mr. Gleeful. He exudes exactly the happy sentiment that I needed to add and I smile every time I see him. Such wonderful artistry. I am sure you would love him as much as I do!

    Gleeful Smile

    I'm delighted with the Gleeful Smile mask by Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya. I bought it to replace a very similar mask I bought in Bali about 30 years ago which was lost while moving house. And it was delivered in record time. Syabas.
