The creative juices flowing through some people are truly mind-blowing.
For instance, why make a regular boring face mask out of fabric when you can knit one? Even better, why not knit one with a wacky, crazy design that’s more like a work of art than a practical tool?
Well, that’s exactly what Icelandic artist Ýrúrarí, who is knitting some seriously amazing face masks with tongues, teeth and lips.
Just check out some of her incredible designs:
There’s even one with braces, which is sweet:
And one with an overzealous tongue:
Tongues on tongues on tongues:
Tongue, but make it fashion:
And don’t forget to cover your nose!
Ýrúrarí is drawing inspiration for the masks from her earlier work with tongues on sweaters:
They’re unisex, too:
Even if you aren’t specifically a fan of clothing with tongues sticking out all over the place, I think we can all agree that her artistry is truly impressive. And, judging by the number of Instagram fans she has, it seems Ýrúrarí’s work is really striking a chord with some people.
Now, if you’re asking the obvious question… of course these face masks aren’t safe for protecting against viruses. Here’s what the artist had to say…
I’ve been experimenting with some of my sweater ideas to wear on a face, always interesting to see the outcome. …good use of quarantine time to knit.
But a reminder again, my masks are not made for safety, knitted masks are not safe to start with!
What’s your favorite piece of clothing you own? Are there any outfits you wear that make you feel totally confident and at peace with yourself?
