Do you recognise who this mask is modelled on?
He has made a few appearances in some of my posts.
This is a self-portrait he created it by feeling the shapes and contours of his face, then transferring what he felt into the clay and it slowly came alive. He is very talented.
These are some of the other masks he has made and they are scattered around the garden waiting to pop out at you from among the foliage.
Below is the legendary “Green Man” (Wikipedia)
A legendary pagan deity who roams the woodlands of the British Isles and Europe. He usually is depicted as a horned man peering out of a mask of foliage, usually the sacred oak. He is known by other names such as “Green Jack, “Jack-in-the-Green” and “Green George.” He represents spirits of trees, plants and foliage. It is believed he has rain making powers to foster livestock with lush meadows. He was frequently depicted in medieval art, including church decorations.
This Māori warrior is in full battle cry.
This final mask is Neptune, God the Sea.
