New Britain Owl Mask Pot WIP

View the finished Niu Briten Pot here.

I found an image in Huber's Treasury of Fantastic and Mythological Creatures that I've been wanting to incorporate into a pot for a while.  It's identified as an owl mask from the Baining people of New Britain, an island east of New Guinea and politically a part of Papua New Guinea.

I'm not sure if I like it yet, but I would like to point out that the original doesn't look much more like an owl than this does.

Part of me thinks that I should have left the pot unadorned.
