A member of the Louisiana Lumbee tribe, D. R. happily gave up his oil-field jobs to concentrate on gorgeously colorful gourd masks, like this one.
It is an imaginative creation, with no specific meaning, but delightfully decorative.
This natural gourd was halved, scraped, and painted by hand. The feathers and real horse hair are all natural.
Exquisitely colored parrot feathers range from teal to pale gold, with a bit of gorgeous coral,and beautiful, natural shading.
A fluffy cascade of exotic fowl feathers softens the forehead., while long horsehair tassels bring in a different texture.
Metallic blue paint is bordered by mellow gold, with a leathery russet center to the “face”. These colors complement and repeat those in the feathers.
Brighten your wall; add beautiful variety to an arrangement of paintings, drawings, and other art.
Lusciously textured and hued; a richly decorative addition to your home, whether alone, or part of an ensemble.
