Ifrit Mask by merimask Ifrit Mask by merimask
An Ifrit is a mythological creature, often depicted as a demon dog with horns. Considered a malevolent fire spirit of the desert, Ifrit appears throughout middle eastern mythology. My Ifrit is loosely based on the version in the game "Final Fantasy", and modified to be wearable (the horns are sometimes as long as the animal's body!)

As ever, this is made from one piece of 8oz leather, hand carved and hand shaped, painted with Liquitex acrylics.

Custom orders like this one can be requested ONLY at my online shop: [link]

I love the snarling snout and the scar across the eye! What a great way to incorporate those long horns too. Beautiful work, as always,

Thank you. :-) I just followed the client's instructions, but it did turn out pretty neat. Scary!

Very nice. I love how well the horns contrast with the "fur"

Thank you. Yes, furry "flames" against the blue-black horns looks pretty neat. :-)
