Il Tempo Vola 17 by merimask Il Tempo Vola 17 by merimask
This design is an elegant combination of traditional Venetian design with added clockwork parts for an updated touch. "Il Tempo Vola", meaning "time flies".

It is made from one piece of 8oz leather, hand carved and shaped without molds or forms, then painted with colorfast acrylics in black, white, and bright silver. The mask is sealed with a clear-coat acrylic, is water resistant, and safe to wear in any weather.

Then I augmented and decorated it with real vintage clock parts, securely bolted to the piece. The centerpiece is the movement (non-functional) of an old Swiss wrist watch.

Signed, dated, numbered original. This is "Il Tempo Vola V17", available only at my online shop, here ---> [link]

It is interesting and if you order more than three masks will be off?

Hello! I have a question. Would it be possible to commission a custom version of this type of mask? I don't have the funds right now, but if it's possible I would certainly purchase one when I got the money for it.

Sure! Nothing can be done exactly the same twice, because the parts are vintage antiques and they vary, but something similar...sure.

Possibly! Probably. The week of Christmas is a slow week for sales. :)
