Le génie du mal [The genius of evil, aka; Lucifer]; Guillaume Geefs
“The statue was originally a commission for Geefs’ younger brother Joseph, who completed it in 1842 and installed it the following year. It generated controversy at once and was criticized for not representing a Christian ideal.The cathedral administration declared that “this devil is too sublime.” The local press intimated that the work was distracting the “pretty penitent girls” who should have been listening to the sermons.” [x]

I’v been wanting to spotlight this artist for along time. Zarnala http://zarnala.deviantart.com/ renders beautiful professional concept art. What count my eye were her bright, detailed aliens and humanoid animals.
I have never reblogged something so fast in my life
There were so many beautiful masks in TheArtofMask’s shop that I couldn’t just feature one!
"All of my masks are paper mache and made to be worn. I use an imported 100% wool paper that makes the mask durable yet lightweight. All of the embellishments (leaves, flowers, etc.) with either wool or parchment papers. Things like berries, rose hips, and acorns are made with paper clay."
