Chimera Mask by Namingway Chimera Mask by Namingway
A mask based on the chimera monster of myth, in rich golds, oranges, and reds. Traditionally the chimera has a lion body, a lion and goat head, and a serpent tail. Here I gave it the head of a horned lion, with a snake coiling down its snout and a goat emblem on its forehead. The goat and snake have gleaming red glass eyes, and a teardrop red gem is set in the snake's forehead. The mask is entirely hand sculpted and painted and has an artist's stamp on the back with the date is was created. It is extremely lightweight, and the horns are somewhat flexible to reduce the risk of damage. With horns, the mask is 14" wide. The main mask is 8" wide and 7" tall.

This mask has sold, but I do accept commissions if you want something similar.

A mix of materials, but primarily a kind of sculpting resin.
