Here’s a little leather mask with fine feather work details around the eyes. The feathers are green and brown pheasant feathers with just a touch of iridescent sheen. It has an an abstract leaf or bird-like shape that works nicely with a variety of characters or themes (woodland, faerie, bird, druid, dryad, etc. ). The primary color is a metallic bronze that fades out to color shifting green and brown tones at the outer edges.
It measures about 10″ wide by 4″ high, and it ties with gorgeous and durable stretch lace straps.
One of the photos shows this style of mask being worn by a human. The mask in that picture was sold long ago, but I’ve included the image in order to give you a better idea of the size and scale of this piece. Note that the mask that the woman is wearing has a beak, but the one in this listing does not.
The last few photos show this mask next to a very similar design in shades of green. The two masks are sold separately, but they’d make a lovely pair. You can find the green one here.
