Swabian-Alemannic Fastnacht Mask (Dalba Hexa)
Swabian-Alemannic Fastnacht Mask (Dalba Hexa)

This time a piece of folklore :)
The Swabian-Alemannic Fastnacht, Fasnacht (in Switzerland) or Fasnat/Faschnat (in Vorarlberg), is the pre-Lenten carnival in Alemannic folklore in Switzerland, southern Germany, Alsace and Vorarlberg.
I made this for my father who is very into the Fastnacht. It's the mask he is wearing during this time. The mask is traditionally carved out of wood and painted by hand.
I tried to replicate the wood carved and hand painted look.
For the shading of the fabric I was testing the thunderloom shader for vray.
