Mask – Zephyr (for Sale)

Mask – Zephyr (for Sale)
23rd August 2016 Oz Osmaston

In France with Geoff for a week’s carving and the opportunity to carve something different from usual. I think it was Geoff who suggested this might be the wind god – Zephyr. When I did it, I had no idea where I was headed though I did like this¬†Henry Moore mask (see photo below). Once carved I wasn’t sure if I liked my mask much though. Since then I’ve become bizarrely fond of him! He doesn’t have a home, so make me an offer…
