Fighting Bettas...leather mask by merimask Fighting Bettas...leather mask by merimask
I am so very happy with this mask! It was inspired by so many things (I wrote all about it in my LiveJournal...which you can find here: [link] )

Basically it's a depiction of two crown tail bettas (fighting fish) all swirling together. Made entirely of leather, like all my masks.

You can see this mask and many others at my online Etsy shop...[link]

Fighting Bettas...leather mask by *merimask. The suggester said that "The concept of this leather mask is very neat, but the execution just blows it away, especially with the fine, fluid lines and the little curls on the tail. I like how it just wraps around the eyeholes like that." Also suggested by ~Zyleeth and *EnigmaticEmpress. ( Suggested by Windy-Willows and Featured by Kitten-of-Woe )

That is an absolutely beautifully crafted mask! It's about conflict, but also so much about balance, too.
