If this looks familiar, it's because it's a remake of the second mask I ever made back in 2009:
A client requested this mask specifically, and I agreed to remake it as long as I could fix the beak!
Since then I've learned how to shape leather to an actual raptor beak shape, and they agreed that it would look better with the new type of beak I do. I also placed the real feathers in a more orderly fashion, and in the past 4 years my tooling has gotten a lot better so the mask has better texture (and I like to think my painting ability has gotten better, too >.>)
7-oz. hand-carved and shaped leather and painted with acrylics. The feathers are a variety of pheasant and chicken feathers.
