Intro: Mask - "Domesticated Ibex"

Created in 2009 over two months. After being obsessed with BBC's 'Planet Earth' series, particularly the segment featuring Ibexes, I wanted to incorporate huge horns into a mask. The housing bubble had been in the news constantly. I used a Carpenter Gothic house for reference. My previous three masks had birds incorporated too and I wanted to continue with that theme. 

Materials:
- Horns, house, bird and talons carved from Ethafoam
- Forms covered in polar fleece and airbrushed
- Faux fur used for details
- House trim, shutters, door, steps and bushes cut from sheet rubber and hand painted
- Windows and talon nails cut from Makrolon polycarbonate sheet 
- Bird eyes cut from ping pong balls, painted, white glare highlights cut from vinyl

    Thanks! You can partially see out the windows and a bit out of the cracks in the house. It probably has the worst vision of all my masks.
