Babylonian King

mask 8a

Another amazing mask from Joel Cooper.

It reminds me very much of the Assyrian and Persian artwork of ancient times- especially the heavily stylized beard.

The detail on the eyelids, nose, and lips astound me.

Click through to his Flickr photostream for another photo in 3/4 view, as well as many other wonderful pictures.

(For some reason I missed posting this earlier in March. oops!)

    Yes, I think the same kind of thing when I look at Joel’s work!

    I see the tessellations, but the scale of the effort involved is quite overwhelming.
