Swiss artist Stefan Kunzler renders these mysterious masks.

Based in Zurich, Switzerland, the artist created these masks from a meticulous casting process. The series draws inspiration from mythology, sci-fi and folklore. One mask is an Imperial-like collation of sharp angles and deep eye sockets. Another features elements comparable to Lord Sauron, with harsh spikes and a demonic glare. Others feature more friendly characteristics. Two masks within the series brag a thick head of curly locks, similar to that of Zeus and other Greek mythological heroes. Another is insect-like, with a frenzy of hazardous red wisps poking out in all directions.

Stefan Kunzler's collections of masks are ominous and dark. Whether reflecting a beloved hero or hated villain, the collection is fear-inducing.
