The Antelope with Six Legs

Another of the critters I made from Borge's "Book of Imaginary Beings". The Antelope with six legs is a very old story from the steppes of Mongolia. Once all antelopes had six legs, and men were fast enough to hunt them. But as men got smaller and smaller, it became harder and harder to catch the antelope. One day, the best of the human hunters went out, and he chased the antelope all across the sky and between six stars. When he finally caught the antelope, he cut off her middle set of legs so that future hunters would not have to chanse so fleet a prey.

My antelope has the whole story hammered into her horns, cave painting style. I'll never forget it, and neither will you.

Our masks are flexible, and fit off the human skull. regardless of whether you think your head is very small, very large, or fairly average, they will fit. You may end up opening them up a tiny bit over the bridge of the nose, or closing them down a tiny bit in the same spot, but this can easily be done by hand.

The wonder of a copper mask is in the strength and give of the material. Because it is so strong, the mask can be very thin- this makes it both very light, and makes it possible to fit as a second skin. These won't block your peripheral vision the way a leather. paper maiche, or plastic mask would. They can be very comfortably worn all day and night- no worries about sweat or rain causing them to soften and lose their shape. Rinse it with clean water at the end of the night before putting it away. They can stand up to anything you throw at them. As for packing? Throw it in your bag. If you're checking the bag, maybe stuff a balled up pair of socks where your forehead would go. Easy.

Not planning to wear your mask? He or she won't mind. They can hang flat against a wall, or sit on a shelf.
