In a post on Reddit, a user known as PenguinThold shared an image of an artwork he created based on The Legend of Zelda series. This particular fan art stood out because the creator decided to recreate the Deku mask from Majora’s mask. In the game, it’s a mask used for transformation, turning Link into a Deku Scrub, with a new set of abilities.

The mask featured in the Reddit image had a black color on top with shades of brown underneath. Among the design highlights, PenguinThold included the recognizable aspects of the in-game mask. For example, it had a pair of orange eyes and three leaves attached to the back of the object. Impressively, the Reddit user revealed that he made the entire mask out of papier-mâché and cardboard.

Since posting this awesome papier-mâché Mojo mask on Reddit, members of the Zelda the community took notice. Over the past two days, several hundred users have voted for the post, with a few people commenting to praise the design. Additionally, PenguinThold revealed in the comments section that they are working on another mask, this time the game’s Zora mask.

Whereas Majora’s Mask was released over 20 years ago, it’s impressive to see the vast amount of artwork that fans have created based on the title. Although this Deku mask is remarkable, it is only one of the many creations presented by talented Zelda fans over the past two weeks. For example, another player recently shared an image of an actual replica of Majora’s mask that he created. With the release of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 is expected to arrive next year, it seems likely that gamers will continue to create artwork based on the series for the foreseeable future.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is available now for Nintendo 64 and Switch via the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack, and an enhanced port is available on 3DS.
