Tom Banwell—Pestis: Plague Dr. Beak

Pestis

I think he seems separated at birth from this guy, or the artist has watched the movie The Wiz as many times as I have.

Pestis: Plague Dr. BeakIntroducing the latest in my line of plague doctor masks. Pestis is a half mask, leaving the eyes uncovered. It can easily be accessorized with goggles and hood or hat. Made with the same quality and fine materials as my other plague doctor masks.

Art=Stillness

“I feel that art has something to do with the achievement of stillness in the midst of chaos. A stillness which characterizes prayer too, and the eye of the storm. I think that art has something to do with an arrest of attention in the midst of distraction.”

 

— Saul Bellow
