A Japanese Artist Uses Wool Felt To Make A Giant, Super-Realistic Cat Mask

Apr 21, 2015 By Archit Tripathi

Needle-felting master Housetu Sato is, apparently, a cat person. An instructor at the Japanese School of Wool Art (yes, there is such a thing), Sato and his students recently created this giant, super-realistic cat mask out of sheep's wool felt. The mask is part of an exhibit that will be on display at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum April 18-23, 2015. 

Since the Internet loves all things cat-related, the mask has become a viral sensation online. While everyone agrees that it's incredibly well made, opinions remain thoroughly divided on whether it's disturbing or cute.


Currently, there are no plans to sell it, but Sato said he's certainly open to creating more. It's hard to imagine something like this having a hard time finding customers, so hopefully he's convinced and we can eventually get our hands on one of these.
