“Midnight” is a black raven half-mask, (meaning it covers the top half of the face and will fit an average face) inspired by the Venetian masking tradition. The base is papier mache that has been painted black and then decorated with real coque feathers with resin and metal accents. The feathers are in eight pairs and one trio. The three feathers at the centre of the forehead have a larger, black resin flower at their base. The background of the mask is has a slight gloss finish with a harder gloss on the beak. The feathers are a deep black with a hint or green/brown iridescence and the metal accents are an antiqued blacken bronze colour. I hand-make each mask base and then individually design and hand-cut each one so they are all unique art pieces. The inside is black
This piece is 8 1/2” (21.5 cm) wide, 5” (12.5 cm) high and around 2” (5 cm) deep. The beak projects an additional 2 1/2” (6 cm) forward. The accent feathers extend between 1" and 4" from the edges of the mask. The black ribbon ties are 13” (33 cm) long. 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. They can be worn with no problems so don't worry about having to take special care of it. Just keep it away from high levels of moisture. Each of my masks are hand-cut for both the edges and the eye-holes so they will vary from piece to piece.

This is a very dramatic and striking mask. I think it would suit a man or a woman but you can also simply display it! If you plan to hang it on a wall, I can attach a hanging for you at no additional charge, just contact me and we discuss your style/colour preferences.

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

We have tried to do a “worst case” on the shipping prices, due to the variances in Canada Posts costs by location. We will refund any overcharges.
