Black Swallowtail Mask by Angelic-Artisan Black Swallowtail Mask by Angelic-Artisan
For Sale @ Artfire :pointr: [link]
For Sale @ Etsy :pointr: [link]
Inspired by the markings of the Black Swallowtail Butterfly, this mask proves that one's wings need not be bright in order to be beautiful! The subtle tones and texture in this mask were meticulously carved to imitate the texture and pattern of a butterfly's wing.

Carved from 8 oz leather and painted by hand. It has been sealed with varnish and signed on the back. It is held to the face with graceful dancer's ribbon. Because it is made from leather, it should conform to most sizes of faces due to its flexibility.

Want another species of butterfly? Custom commissions are available!

Awesome! That's just what I was going for. I think the subtle blue in this mask makes it much more realistic than some of my others, which is why this one is one of my faves.
