Physical description
Mask constructed of white nylon and Swiss braid with white albino feather trim. The work is comprised of central seam with a wide 'scuba' mask opening at the front to reveal the wearer's eyes. The rounded bottom of the mask cups the chin, while the tall peak curves over the head like a plume. The piece fastens to the head with a clear plastic comb.
