This is a little bit different than some of the stuff I’ve been working on recently, but it was thought up a couple of years ago and only just got actually put together.

A long time ago I ran across an Inuit mask at the Natural History Museum in Chicago. I’ve admired it every time I return to my home town, and began stalking Ebay for an artisan made mask.

Finally, it occured to me that perhaps I should just make my own.
Inspired by Lewis Wilson’s totem poles, “Pipyr,” and the real objects.
