"ANGELO LEONE ALATO" "ANGEL, WINGED LION"
This winged lion represents the evangelist St Mark pictured in the form of a winged lion. This is the symbol of my dear city of Venice that I love and also formely the symbol of the Republic of Venice. Here is a big,still unique piece of mask at the moment, in progress on the table. It took several days to create and finish this huge piece nearly 75 cm high and 90 cm wide.
These pheasant feathers have been bleached to lose a little bit of their original and natural colour and then cut one by one into different shapes and individually attached. The wings have been re-created entirely as it can be difficult to find natural wings from the same bird of that size and that fixed shape and... in good condition.
