Tribal Dragon Skull Mask no. 2 by merimask Tribal Dragon Skull Mask no. 2 by merimask
Last mask of 2010...a Tribal Dragon Skull. Again, many thanks to :icondonsimpson: for inspiring me with his haunting skull carvings.

Like all my masks, this is hand carved and hand shaped without molds or forms, from one piece of 8oz leather. It's been painted with colorfast Liquitex acrylics in black, brown and white & sealed with an acrylic clearcoat for durability. The tribal designs are tooled in textured relief, as though carved into the "bone".

Signed, dated, numbered original; this is " Tribal Dragon Skull #2". Available exclusively at my online shop: [link]

I love the concept you've used here, and I think I'm much more of a fan of the subtle colours- makes it look as though the dragon was born with those markings inlaid into it's skull.

Ha, I like this version even better. The tribal design looks more organic and natural, almost like it was on the dragon when he was still alive, a natural pattern. This also makes the mask look older, more weather worn, which is very appropriate for a skull. :D

I absolutely looove your dragons.. and your dragon skulls.. and this, this is perfect... I am in awe of your mad skills. :D

I wish working leather wasn't so hard on my hands... or maybe i'm just doing it wrong. :)

Both of them are fantastic, but between the two I think I prefer this one; the way you did the markings on this has a really nice subtlety. Really cool!

Great way to end the year, yeah?
