Handmade pottery mask in a visceral, rough sculpture clay with non-toxic green glaze and zinc oxide stain. All of our masks are one of a kind and made with care and affection. Each mask is fitted with picture wire so that you can hang it up easily on a stake, a fence or your wall.

The lighter, brighter picture is washed out a bit to show you the detail of the mask. The darker images are truer to colour.

Size: The Holly King's image measures 7 1/4 x 11 inches.

The Holly King, and his twin, the Oak King battle twice yearly for dominance and the Crown of the Year. The Holly King rules the year from the Summer Solstice (Midsummer) until the Winter Solstice (Yule), when his nemesis, the Oak King, wins the crown and rules the bright phase of the year once again.

The Holly King represents the down-cycle of the natural world, the time when nature draws inwards in preparation for the vitality of spring. He encourages rest and contemplation. The Holly King was created as a pendent to the Oak King mask and as such he provides needed balance in your garden and support for the cycle of the growing year.

**If you do decide to hang your sculpture outside, please be aware that broad fluctuations in temperature may cause it damage. As such, we recommend finding a place for your sculpture indoors when the weather turns cold (if the weather turns cold, that is!) Otherwise, the masks weather wonderfully outside and you will be pleased to see your sculpture become even more beautiful with age.
