The Jatayu Bird Mask

il_570xN.360966745_j640

This is the Jatayu bird mask from Indonesia. You’ll find them everywhere being sold as souvenirs, especially in Bali. Once upon a time, Indonesia was part of the larger Hindu empire.

Legend has it that Jatayu, the King of Vultures, was slained by Ravana after he tried to rescue the princess Sita.

Personally, I don’t like seeing these masks hanging on home walls. But I thought it would be perfect for my psycho assassin in Smokescreen to wear it for one intense scene.

Now close your eyes and imagine being chased by a psychopath wearing this mask as you run down an apartment stairwell.
