“A Lion sleeps in the heart of every brave man”

-Turkish Proverb


Courage has been a subject I have been focusing on in much of my work lately. Couple that with a great love for Italy and its beautiful art/culture and this design is what emerged. This lion is inspired from the winged Venetian lions you can find in and around Venice, Italy. I included a picture in the above photos that this mask was inspired from.

I wanted this mask to have a worn look to it, while still having the allure of a bronze sculpture. That is why I mixed metallic paints with a green/patina coat layered on top. This is a fairly large mask, so please be wary of this and know it would work well for most sizes, but not recommended for children.

All of my masks and designs are created from scratch out of durable 8 oz leather (unless otherwise mentioned). Hand cut, formed and painted with acrylics with felt lining on the inside for comfort. Every mask is properly sealed and includes a long satin ribbon for wearing or to hang on the wall for a beautiful display piece. I mixed in metallic paint with all the colors in this mask – so when the light shines on it just right, it has a beautiful, pearlescent glow to it that is so lovely.

I love to call my masks "wearable art" because that is exactly what they are. Each is an original in its own right, hand crafted with the utmost care and because of the nature of the leather, incredibly light weight when worn and yet still maintains its basic shape throughout.

Thank you for looking!
