'Til The Other Shoe Drops
Following my exploration of the concept of the Plague Doctor masks, this mask design totally came out of left field. I was holding the basic shape after forming it and I saw a classic saddle shoe in my mind's eye. Go figure... So there you have it! Made with the thermoplastic Wonderflex© material, it also has genuine leather "saddle" and sole, real shoe laces and retro-look sunglasses. A black bow tie under the chin completes the look. This is a substantial mask and it measures about 14" from the top to the tip of the shoe. "Nostrils" on top of the snout and a larger opening underneath the jaw provide adequate air flow and allow wearer to drink from a straw without removing the mask. Finished in stark black and white. This is a one-of-a-kind mask, never to be repeated again. Leather straps with Velcro provide a secure hold.

This mask is currently available at Human Arts Gallery, 246 E. Ojai Avenue, Ojai, CA 93023, 805.646.1525.
