Gold Knotwork Falcon - Leather Mask with Stone by windfalcon Gold Knotwork Falcon - Leather Mask with Stone by windfalcon
I love falcons and I love knotwork, so I don't know why it took so long for me to make a mask with both!  Like the Heron mask, this falcon mask has a cat's eye stone in the forehead.  The knotwork is metallic gold.  This mask was hand-carved from 7-oz leather and hand-painted with acrylics.  If you'd like to see alternate views, please click the link below.

This mask is available for sale! - www.etsy.com/listing/177994835… Sold! If you're interested in one of your own, let me know!

they look surprisingly good as wall pieces. to be honest if i hadn't actually seen one i would be sceptical just because i'm not a fan of flat-ish wall pieces [regardless of the amazing artistry] but these are lovely, i think it's because it actually looks like a roosting bird on the wall Love and i absolutely love birds!

OK this is absolutely stunning - the purple tones looks so regal somehow, and the knotwork and stone in the middle are awesome touchs. I hope whoever bought it gets some pics for you - I'd love to see the shape of it on. It looks like it would frame the face fantastically.

I honestly can't get over how wonderful this mask is... O_O I especially love the fact that accenting on the falcon's feathers matches the stone - excellent design choice!

How did you do that?
Reply

windfalcon Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
By a method called tooling - I carve lines in the leather with a swivel blade and bevel the edges with hammering tools :)

I work on multiple projects at once, so off and on this took a few days.

haha I feel that way a lot, as far as wondering 'why did it take me so long to do these things I love?'  This came out gorgeous, Brenda!  I do hope you'll try other birds this way.  I'd love to see you explore more of this visual style.
