If you know me at all, you know I am crazy about Masks. Recently my father was complaining about not having a proper place to hang up his shirts so they wouldn't get wrinkled. I suggested we could put up some hooks. Then it hit me shy not make the hooks into something decorative. So I America up with some Mask designs
Aren't they cool, plus as a bonus when the shirts and hangers are not there the Masks look like wall art! :)
My inspiration were the Tiki masks I figured the Masks would be the decorative element and the youngest would be the actual hooks.

I used bronze for the base & brass for the ears, tounge & other elements. I made four of them unfortunately ended up using only two of them but here they are. I oxidised the bronze base & cleaned & buffed the brass elements.
|All four designs done|
|The two that I ended up using fixed on the wall|
|Finally my Dad's clothes have a great place to be hung up on !|
