Green Man - Leather Mask
Medium: Leather, acrylic paint and leather lace.
Original: Sold, please contact me if interested in this mask.
The Green Man is a very intriguing figure found throughout Europe. The figure of a man's face formed
from or sprouting leaves has been found from the British Isles to Germany, and even is depicted in
present day in art and design.
I've always wanted to try my hand at creating a Green Man mask! I was fortunate enough to have someone
request one, which gave me an excuse to try a very complex mask.
All in all, this is a 4-layer mask. There is the mask itself, then two layers of leaves behind, then
one leaf on the front. For this mask, I used leather cord instead of the regular ribbons I use, since
it seemed to compliment the design better.
