The Mask!

So guys, I think that I finally finished that mask I had in my drawer for almost a year. It was modeled by a doll in my solo show at Villa Terrace museum last year, but it was acutally an unfinished project and that’s why I hadn’t put it up in the galleries yet. In this shot Sapphire is modeling the mask because I am still making the doll. She will be officially unveiled sometime next month.

The mask ornament is heavily inspired by the Bronze Age death masks in which people of status and wealth were buried. It was also inspired by the art of ancient Aztecs. It’s carved in wax, cast in bronze and gold plated with 24 k gold. The mask is decorated with Rubies, Pink Tourmaline, Opals, dyed shell and glass beads.

More pictures of this doll is coming soon.

    wow, it’s changed so much! So will the doll still be called Sacrificial Female? Or was that the doll that modeled the mask? And how about the rest of Sacrificial’s costume? The skirt and the necklace… part of this mask’s doll costume or part of that doll model? Did those questions make sense? lol
