For this art mask of a Jewish scribe living in ancient Persia  (Mordechai, from the Book of Esther), Beckie built his beard out of twisted Hebrew newspapers, handmade paper, and metal pen nibs.  The hair is a combination of paper and fake fur.  The turban is a combination of handmade paper with a variety of writing screened on it, along with custom fabric  created by inkjet printing images of ancient Persian cuneiform tablets.
