If you've ever played the sequel-of-sorts to the N64 classic The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, then you'll understand why owning your very own Majora's Mask might not be a very good idea.

Much like The One Ring from J.R.R. Tolkien's classic The Lord of the Rings novels, or, more fittingly, the Fused Shadows from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, the real mask harbours within it a great evil power which corrupts the mind of its owner, with largely undesirable consequences; it's not something you'd want sitting on your mantelpiece, put it that way. Unless, of course, it was this awesome replica, created by DeviantArt user supermaRiio.

Based on this high-quality 3D render by Cordell Felix, the replica looks to be made entirely from wood, with a few screws here and there for good measure. Its weathered, textured look is genuinely ominous; we're getting the chills just looking at this thing!

This incredible creation is, as you'd imagine, a one-off, and its creator has already stated that he has no intentions of selling it. Boo!

Fortunately, though, he documented the entire creation process in a picture diary, right from its humble beginnings as a big ol' block of wood, to the absolutely gorgeous end product you see here before your very eyes. Luckily for you, we've been given permission to share them all in the gallery below.
