Ancient Egyptian Horus Mask by Namingway Ancient Egyptian Horus Mask by Namingway
I've done a mask of the ancient Egyptian god Horus before, but I wanted to do one based off of a falcon pectoral they found in Tutankhamen's tomb. And this is the result! He's primarily gold, with blue, turquoise, and red highlights. There's a Czech glass scarab on his forehead holding a small red rhinestone "sun." This is one of my hand sculpted pieces and measures roughly 5 14/" across by 4" deep. There's an artist's mark on the back.

This mask is $60 and may be found here- www.etsy.com/listing/161595062…

That is very unique and cool.  I never would've thought of making masks out of Egyptian imagery, but it seems to lend itself rather well to the craft.  Well done!
