Cee’s Fun Fotos: Car Mascots

Car Mascot-0541

My entry for this week’s challenge by Cee.

Below is a gallery of all the mascots I found at the Art Deco weekend last February.  I think it is a shame that they don’t have them anymore.

I found that the colours were too distracting so I have done them in monochrome.

Monochrome Madness.

Decocraftsdigicrafts-

Here is my entry this week for Monochrome Madness, hosted by Leanne at Leanne Cole PHOTOGRAPHY.  Another photo from the Art Deco Weekend.

I took a lot of photos of car mascots.  I heard a few car fans muttering the magic word Lalique.  And sure enough, when I googled it, I found that it is called ‘Tête d’Aigle’ by René Lalique, 1928 which I found at this site:

I loved the lines with this and just wanted the eagle’s head to stand out.

A little more information about Rene Lalique can be found here:

I love his works of art and I hope I have done it justice.
