~A woman is like a butterfly….

A woman is like a butterfly….

If you want her to stay near you, but fly as she should,
you must not brush the dust off her magical wings,
nor control her essence in your hand…
her beauty will be held only by a stillness and purity of heart.”

~Long Face

~Long Face

Long Face is a plaster and wire fantasy mask measuring 20″ tall by 10″ at it’s widest. He was one of my first full sized masks and actually hung in the gable of my past Florida home for several years. Due to the layering of plaster and acrylic he seems to weather well. We recently mounted him in a recycled cedar fence board frame on a richly textured fabric. The overall piece measures 19″ wide by 29-1/4″ tall.

This guy just never stops smiling! ~Glad Cow~ is a 24″ tall wall hanging, and stands as testament to the durability of our pieces. This fellow has spent a total of 5 years hanging around outdoors and has weathered little.
