Made a start on the horns.
It looks alien like this.

Somehow it wants to look like a particular kind of mask which I discovered on a postcard. But I keep trying to resist.

Ceci n'est pas un singe

A first impression of a mask I might make.
I should have made the teeth white
and the gum pink
And taken marbles for eyes
The spanner has been in our family for decades.
I like its a-symmetry

It's Botsaert, the ape/scribe from Reynard the Fox!
