Starry Night Kosmask (custom-painted)

The Making of a Kosmask

The making of a Kosmask (very cool video). The mold is 35″h x 22″w x 13″d and made of solid aluminum! The heat was so intense it actually cracked the original (it is now repaired). Please check out KOSMASK.COM to see all of the finished products. Amazing stuff from museum represented artists.
