It’s not often Ken Dryden is linked to Egyptian mummies, but Montreal goaltending prospect Peter Delmas has teamed up with painter David Gunnarsson of DaveArt for a unique new take on a Canadiens’ classic.
They put old Dryden’s distinctive mask on the head of a drooling, unravelling mummy, complete with an Egyptian scarab beetle crawling up the back of the head and lots of smaller details integrated subtly into the coloured rings of Dryden’s mask.
“Peter wanted a scary and action packed design, with some humor, and insane details,” Gunnarsson wrote on his Facebook post about the new mask. “We’ll see if the players dare to come close to this mummy, so much is going on there, you find spiders, and a really scary Egyptian scarab beetle! And if the players dare to come really close they will find Egyptian hieroglyphs in the mask!”
