I think there's a couple of issues, if you didn't make the mask it's a photo of someone else's artwork and unless you can prove it over 100 years old with no copy right, that will be you first issue.  The photo is techincally sound but the crop of a half mask limits is usability by a designer so I think composition could get you dinged and then the third possible issue is the low Depth of Field.  I don't understand the need for a low depth of field on this subject or see how it visually enhances the photo so I think not enough in focus will be another possible ding.  


After all that , i think even if it made it in there would be very limited sales potential..But I do kind of like the dark wood on wood and if someone needed a mask for a history or cutural article I could certainly see using it.  I'm not much help am I.
