Peacock Leopard Mask #2 by merimask Peacock Leopard Mask #2 by merimask
A new, magical design; a leopard with peacock feather and semi precious bead strand.  This version is a black leopard with iridescent spots in peacock colors! 

The leopard and feather are both made of hand carved, hand shaped leather.  Each hair and quill are carefully cut into the leather for added detailed realism.  Then it's painted with a variety of iridescent color-shifting acrylic paints.  A tiger eye stone is set in the center of the mask, and the bead strands feature amber, pear and lapis in bright matching peacock colors. 

A really fun, one-of-a-kind mask that I'm very pleased with...available here:  www.etsy.com/listing/182967896…
