Daphne mask Picture

(What category, in the name of all things deviated, does this fall into?)

Nearly four weeks went into this mask, every day for at least two hours. Wows.

For art class, we had to make papier-mâché masks. Our theme, like most of this year, was mythology. We could choose anybody from mythology and just... attempt.

So sticking with my love of trees and such, I decided to do Daphne.

The myth of Daphne and Apollo is very... straightforward. Apollo fell in love with her; she loathed it. She was a nymph, the daughter of a river-god and she was running from Apollo when he chased after her in his "passion", etc. Then she screamed out to her river-god Daddy and in desperation, he changed her into a laurel tree.
