Shavasana also doubles as George Bathgate’s Art Studio where he  makes clay masks adorned with deer antlers and horns. Most of his masks are pagan in appearance, and make a political or social statement. These masks can be found in the Mask Gallery at his website: and if you click on each mask you’ll find image enlargements and descriptions which will explain the thought process behind the creation of each mask.

The antlers have been sourced from either white tail or fallow deer, and the horns are from bighorn sheep. The masks have either been glazed and fired or fired and painted.

The masks are available for viewing or purchase at Shavasana and would make interesting gifts or keepsakes from your trip to the beautiful Gulf Islands on the West Coast of British Columbia.
