What's more fun than rabbits? Clockpunk rabbits! Here's a new take on the "March Hare" theme; "March-Of-Time Hare".
This is a hand carved leather rabbit mask with an industrial theme, ready to wear to your next steampunk convention or masquerade. Perfect for Mardi Gras, Halloween, or just a night out at the club.
The mask is hand carved from one piece of 8oz leather, shaped with no mold or form by hand, painted cream-white, rich antiqued brown and gold with colorfast acrylics, and sealed with a clear acrylic for protection.
The hare is also decorated with an assortment of unique clockwork parts. This mask is very special, because I used a very old Russian metal pocket watch face circa 1900 for a centerpiece...a rare find repurposed as wearable art. It is augmented with modern brass clock hands and bolted securely to the mask using special miniature machine screws. Hard-to-find brass wing gears and clock hands are also securely bolted inside the ears. Definitely a one-of-a-kind piece.
Some care needs to be taken when handling, as the cogs and clock hands can be sharp. Not intended for children.
The mask is worn with a sturdy gold satin cord and sliding cord clasp, for a comfortable adjustable fit. The fifth picture is an example of a similar mask being worn. It is not an image of the mask that is for sale, but only a demonstration of size and fit. The first four pictures are the actual mask that you will receive. Model/photographer Beki Stilborn.
Signed, dated and numbered, this is " 'March-Of-Time Hare' #9"
