Kushiel's Rose Mask II by Angelic-Artisan Kushiel's Rose Mask II by Angelic-Artisan
For Sale on Etsy and Artfire
A 2nd try at this mask. You can see the first here:


Mighty Kushiel, of rod and weal
Late of the brazen portals
With blood-tipp'd dart a wound unhealed
Pricks the eyen of chosen mortals.


- Prayer to Kushiel, Angel of Punishment. From Jacqueline Carey's series of Kushiel's Legacy books.

This was actually a prize for a winner over at #Nights-Doorstep, meaning they get the prototype! Blending a graceful Venetian style with the themes of Phèdre, the heroine of the books who is often symbolized with the rose and the flail which mark her as one of Kushiel's Chosen, blessed and cursed to feel pain as pleasure.

Carved from 8 oz leather, painted with acrylics, and sealed with satin varnish. Held securely to the face with elastic bands. Signed and dated on the back by the artist.
