Hello guys, I wanted to show you my latest WIP, it's a mask from the Noh Theatre, the demon of a jealous woman called Hannya.

I started from this references (the original are carved into a solid block of wood!)

then I made a Gesso mold and i used fiberglass to make the cast. The horns are made with wood. Everything has got to be sanded and bondoed, but I'll post pictures as soon as I have updates!
