Traditional Nepalese bejeweled masks

These bejeweled traditional masks I saw at the Gems and Jewelry Show in Kathmandu on Saturday. Aren't they beauties? Turquoise, coral, garnet, lapis lazuli stones are used in their decoration.

And this is not a mask but still very beautiful handmade sculpture and created by same craftsmen.
