Bast...Handmade Leather Mask by merimask Bast...Handmade Leather Mask by merimask
This is Bast. Egyptian goddess of dancing, music and fertility. Two of those things are great at parties...

Like everything I do, this mask is hand-carved and shaped from one piece of leather. I don't use any molds or forms, so each one is an original sculpture. Painted with Liquitex acrylics in black, gold and just a touch of royal blue inside the ears (to simulate lapis lazuli inlay).

This mask is available now (and frequently) at my online Etsy shop: [link]

I am a worshipper of Bast, and her Soul dances with mine.
I looked but did not find this mask at the website you linked to...

Would it be possible to get a quote?
