Funny looking and gorgeous black painted bull mask with real bull horns. The mask has lovely black painted eyes surrounded by red frame. Both horns have red decorations representing the blood from the bullfights. Notice the colorful stripes painted on the snout that give the mask a nice look. The forehead is highlighted with black undulating carved lines. The mouth shows a big red tongue and many teeth, demonstrating the animal’s fury. The chin has a metal restoration preventing the mask to collapse. The backside shows an excellent patina. Please notice that the price includes FREE USPS Shipping
