I love falcons and I love knotwork, so I don't know why it took so long for me to make a mask with both!  Like the Heron mask, this falcon mask has a cat's eye stone in the forehead.  The knotwork is metallic gold.  This mask was hand-carved from 7-oz leather and hand-painted with acrylics.  If you'd like to see alternate views, please click the link below.

This mask is available for sale! - www.etsy.com/listing/177994835… Sold! If you're interested in one of your own, let me know!

they look surprisingly good as wall pieces. to be honest if i hadn't actually seen one i would be sceptical just because i'm not a fan of flat-ish wall pieces [regardless of the amazing artistry] but these are lovely, i think it's because it actually looks like a roosting bird on the wall Love and i absolutely love birds!

OK this is absolutely stunning - the purple tones looks so regal somehow, and the knotwork and stone in the middle are awesome touchs. I hope whoever bought it gets some pics for you - I'd love to see the shape of it on. It looks like it would frame the face fantastically.

This is incredible! It really looks both organic and mechanical at the same time.
