North Wind mask sculptures

These masks would be appropriate for anyone who understands and lives by harvesting the wind and its power. They were traditionally used to welcome and celebrate the onset of winter and winter activities.

These complex composite masks are made with 12 pieces of pottery, 126 pieces of porcelain, 35 wild turkey feathers, 71 handmade red glass beads (made by the artist), and hand bent wood frames of red oak. Being winter wind masks, they are designed to float and have custom hangars. Custom built shipping crates are included.
