Ouroboros Mask, watersnake by merimask Ouroboros Mask, watersnake by merimask
The second of my Ouroboros masks (see here for a description of "Ouroboros" from the great flawed god Wiki: [link] ), I wanted a more monochromatic snake that featured lots of silvers and dark greys against the black background. I think this is some rare snake from India...? Anyway, it fit the bill and I think it's a very pretty snake.

Carved from one piece of 8oz leather, tooled, wet-formed by hand, heat-set, and painted with Liquitex acrylics.

You can order this mask from my Etsy website: [link]

It's nice to see something like this out there for a change!
I'm tired of people thinking the Ouroboros originated in FMA, it grinds my nerves something awful, LOL.
But sdfkjldsf this one and the other one are so neat.

Thanks very much! LOL yes, Ouroboros is a heck of a lot older than anime. ;-)

It's so nice to see it actually presented as how it is supposed to be as opposed to the knockoff. (:

So nice! Like the way you did the colours and the shape of ouroboros itself on the mask. Well done!
