Leather Plague Doctor Mask in Red is one of my unique signature creations.
The mask consists of a 2 piece design formed and sculpted using a process I developed which allows the leather to form complex shapes. “Casting” of the mask uses a bust that is average head size therefore it fits most people comfortably.
The mask rides high on the forehead and eliminates the need for a second strap. The straps on the mask use brass plated rivets as well as a brass plated buckle. The eyes have acrylic lenses and come in clear, smoke tint and red.
A plague doctor was a medical physician who treated those who had the plague. The doctors were specifically hired by towns with many plague victims in times of epidemics. Since the city was paying their salary, they treated everyone: both the rich and the poor.
They were not normally professionally trained experienced physicians or surgeons, and often were second-rate doctors unable to otherwise run a successful medical business or young physicians trying to establish themselves.

Due to the hand made aspect, not all masks will be identical.
I have been selling online for quite a few years, but at the suggestion of several fellow artists I am selling on Etsy as well.
