This piece is 8” ( 20 cm) wide, 7” ( 18 cm) high and around 3” (7.5 cm) deep. The lower leather panels fall another 5” ( 12.5 cm). The brown vintage ribbon ties are 14” (35.5 cm) long. It has a 1” hanging loop, on the top. It is signed and titled on the inside.
It may look fragile, but my masks are quite sturdy, my crafting method means they are more flexible than most Venetian ones, but just as strong. The surface is mostly leather, so it can handle wear, but the teabags are real and still contain their tea leaves. They are fragile and, if you intend to wear this mask, you'll have to be careful of them. Also keep it away from high levels of moisture. (unless you are in dire need of tea, but don't expect the mask to look all that great after)
The design of this mask is based on the old Norman-Saxon helms. I got thinking about how much the nose-pieces look like spoons and the whole thing grew from there. It's not a joke that everyone will get, but it makes a fun and striking display piece, when hung on the wall. It is quite comfortable to wear and will fit almost any adult, but I think it does look best on a man.
Please Note: I have tried to get pictures that are as colour accurate as possible but they may appear different than life on your monitor.
I have some more in-depth discussion of my methods and of mask history on my website: www.artmasks.ca
