Marcy Friesen Untitled (5 Family Members Mask with Fox Tails)

Artist Statement

My fully beaded mask with arctic fox tail "ties". I based five flowers representing the 5 members of my family. We are all under 1 roof again since Covid 19 brought 2 of our children home from furthering their education. Each petal of every flower is different because we are all processing this time differently. And it is our "new normal". Red is my go to bead color naturally and I used a bead soup to fill the mask in. I love the sparkle and beauty of the bead and fur combo. So many thoughts and prayers while creating this mask....
