New Traditional Horus Mask #1 by merimask New Traditional Horus Mask #1 by merimask
I was commissioned to make a Horus and I ~really~ don't like my old design. So I came up with an entirely new one. This is the first version of that new design.

Horus is one of the oldest and most significant deities in ancient Egyptian religion. He was most often depicted as a falcon, or as a man with a falcon head. Horus served many functions in the Egyptian pantheon, most notably being the god of the sun, war and protection.

My Horus is carved from one piece of thick, 8oz vegetable-tanned tooling leather, shaped by hand, and painted with a variety of colorfast acrylic paints that won't fade or crackle; black, cream white, burnished gold, bright gold, copper and bronze.
