Pipe Band Masquerade - Huntly Hairst : 2007

Following on from my contribution to Halloween in Huntly in 2006, Claudia Zeiske of Deveron Arts asked me to become Artist in Residence in Huntly for two months, beginning in September 2007, where I have been designing and making masks for the Huntly Pipe Band to wear at the annual Halloween Parade. These masks have been specially designed, the Pipers masks as a demon three-quarter face mask enabling them to play their bagpipes, the Drummers with a goblin mask complete with ears, and Red Imp masks for the younger members of the Band. The Drum major has a beautiful Golden Eagle 'helmet' style mask covering his whole head, where his face looks out between the open beak of the bird. Images by Martin Senyszek.
