Barn Owl Mask 2010 by merimask Barn Owl Mask 2010 by merimask
Oh, it's been far too long since I uploaded a mask, so here's something I finished last night. I haven't made this barn owl in a long time, but I received several orders for some (perhaps because there's a CG owl movie coming out soon...?).

So, here is my barn owl mask. Like everything I do, it is hand carved from one piece of 8oz leather, hand shaped, and painted with Liquitex acrylics.

This mask is available at my Etsy shop: [link]

This reminds me of the opening scene of The Labyrinth with the Goblin King in the form of the owl. I love that movie so much.

This is so adorable! I hadn't seen one for an owl before, but, it's just too cute for words! (and, for the record, yes! I think that movie looks adorable, too :3)

I really love that it's not ... well, frightening, for lack of a better word. Sometimes, when I see owls, especially done as masks, they become rather frightening visages, but not this one! I get too many ideas for a costume just looking at this... a pretty cape, with layers and layers of sheer like wings... :love:

Yup it has to be the Owls of Ga'Hoole causing the owl trend! This is gorgeous, regardless. Amazing how simple it is, but with such lovely textural subtlety! You make me want to try my hand at snow owls :)
