Customer Reviews of Salihu Ibrahim
As I was placing my "Ancestor's Spirit" mask on my south wall, it was as though I could see eyes behind the mask...so masterfully carved in honor and dignity, I actually see the spirits there behind the wood and clay. Without a doubt I believe the Artist is a rare and precious jewel. My home is honored by his work and my heart content in the presence of the spirits who enter here. Very intense and powerful work. Many thanks.
- Rochelle S, Los Angeles
