Mask of Poseidon

Mask that represents Poseidon – the king of the seas according to the Greek mythology, completed in 2010. The project was conceived and drawn by myself based on photos taken from a Greek statue (5th. century BC). It was hand carved (in low-relief) on a pau marfim (Balfourodendron riedelianum) board and affixed on a panel made of true Rio-Rosewood (Dalbergia nigra). The mask finishing was done with opaque varnish and the rosewood panel was finished with wax. Only hand tools were used.

Dimensions of mask: 12” high x 9” wide x 1 3/8” thick
Dimensions of panel: 18” high x 15” wide x 3/8” thick
