This is a particularly spectacular mask. This mask has lovely curving horns reminiscent of eddies in the air on a spring day; you can see them as the dust motes spiral through a beam of light, but you can also imagine them into whatever form you wish them to be. I think they are gentle and full of caress, but you can see them however you want. The bird (perhaps those swirling eddies are created from under the bird's wings?) sports a light-grabbing carnelian cabochon, just for fun (something about coconuts and the velocity of swallows goes here, I'm sure you can fill it in).
Migration IS a big mask, and also a super comfortable one. The upper horns each curve carefully to rest along the wearer's head, distributing the (honestly rather light) weight such that you nose and face, while covered, can remain unencumbered. This mask is not the best choice for glasses (though I'm happy to consult; it does depend on your frames and we might be able to make it work). And I tried it last night; it fits fine over the type of cloth masks that have become ubiquitous between the time of this mask's creation and now.
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. On the big ones like this, the horns are very carefully shaped to rest along your skull, distributing what weight there is evenly and comfortably; you'll feel it the same way you would feel a hat. These won't block your peripheral vision the way a leather, paper maiche, or plastic mask would. The noses are always designed in a way that allows you to eat and drink (we'll mention it specifically if there's any limitations on that-just because you can eat dinner with a knife and fork doesn't always mean you can eat a hoagie!) 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.
