Thoth and Horus Leather Masks by merimask Thoth and Horus Leather Masks by merimask
Here's another special request order that I just completed and sent this morning (after struggling to photograph them in the wicked wind we are getting today!): Thoth and Horus.

Thoth is the Ibis-headed god of ancient Egypt, and Horus is the falcon. Two bird-headed Egyptian gods. I think they'll make an interesting pair.

Made from 8 ounce hand carved hand shaped leather, painted with Liquitex acrylics. Custom orders like this one can be requested only at my online shop: [link]

Just curious, but I was wondering if you could tell me how to make this mask, since how I want to do one for Halloween. If not, when will you have another available in your shop?

Absolutely wonderfully job on the both of them

Horus especially

I'm a fairly big "Book Of The Dead buff", so this is a grand treat for me

You peg the style spot on, and manage to adapt the concept into the type of medium you are using flawlessly!

Birds! :love:

The Thoth-mask looks very elegant and ever-so-slightly creepy (I think it's all the black, and the angle of the beak; makes it look like it's staring into the back of my head, or something o.O Eeep), and the designs on the Horus-mask are very nice. :)

I like these! You dont often see Egyptian-themed masks. And the gold and black on Thoth is really stunning and sharp. Great job!

Considering that when Horus caused Thoth's father (yes, his father) to give birth, Thoth nipped in and stole the baby (a moon-disc) to wear on his head... yeah, you ould say they're an interesting pair. XD

No mistaking who they are ;) These are both very elegant. I think they'll make quite the statement!

The Thoth mask reminds me a little of the plague doctor masks, but much friendlier :-). And I really like the design around the eyes of the the Horus mask ^^.
