Making a medieval leather water flask / bottle. I'm going to try boiling the leather for a short time (instead of just soaking it) so it will thicken and harden as it dries. Then wax it & away you go...

This bodhisattva, ca 3rd century, can be identified as Maitreya by the lip of the sacred water flask in his left hand and by his loop topknot, a hairstyle common to Maitreya images. On the base, donor figures venerate a Buddhist reliquary that rests on a low throne under a canopy. Pakistan (ancient region of Gandhara) Medium: Gray schist Dimensions: H. 64 1/4 in.
