Drawing Snake Specimens/Masks

I drew this snake skin from the Grant Museum into the fabric of Fredrics hat.

African Mask

The patient Fredric is from the Republic of Congo and remembered masks and rituals through his drawings.

Some of Fredrics Drawings had animal spirits, chimerical men and snakes emerging from human heads. Here I am drawing this snake skeleton emerging from the head within the portrait.
