This is a handcrafted mask with 18th century style wig and rolls of feathers that can be worn at parties, carnival, shows or displayed in the space of your choice, for example also protected and emphasized under a glass, acrylic dome or case.
If the mask is displayed without a protective dome or case, you will easily dust it delicately with a fan-shaped artist or makeup brush available in the best art supplies or makeup shops.
This piece is unique in a sense that each one that I make in a serie of a same theme will have that precious uniqueness which is the result of my inspiration of the moment, the way the feathers get the harmonious shape, the different effect given by a patina, a whole variety of things are the reasons why I display each piece individually with again, a unique serial number and hand signed by me.
