Dog Star Silk Mask
The Dog Star silk mask is a sparkling tribute to our brightest star, Sirius, and the Egyptian god, Osiris. Sirius is well known as the Dog Star because it's the dominant star in the constellation Canis Major—the Big Dog. In ancient Egypt, Sirius came to be associated with Osiris due to it's sparkling and scorching power. Coptic astronomers noted that Sirius rose just before the sun each year immediately before the Nile River's annual flooding. Although the floods could bring destruction, they also brought new soil and new life. Embrace the changing seasons and resurrect your spirits in this stunning colorway.
ABOUT OUR MASKS
Each silk mask is one of a kind. Our fabric is hand dyed by artist Laura Kozaitis who fuses traditional and modern dying techniques to achieve her signature designs. Your mask was sewn in Queens, NY by a small group of women; many of whom are mothers that have been hard hit by the recent pandemic. Collaborating with Silk Road Spaceship provided them the opportunity for independent enterprise through fair wages, as well as the safety and flexibility to work from home.
