|Stainless Steel, Shed Deer Antler, Unknown Agate|
The tusks were an easy decision. The hard part was the metal- I very much wanted this to be a white elephant, but neither paint nor enamel seemed to have that feeling of purity/humility. In all honesty, I would have loved to do him out of silver, but that's out of the ballpark, right now. Working him in stainless was tough, but not as bad as i had feared, and I'm glad I did it. It isn't really "white" but it's color will stand out from the other masks, which is really what matters.
