The Mask of the Mother is a unique head armor piece in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

One of the three masks of the Pinwheel, the necromancer who stole the power of the Gravelord, and reigns over the Catacombs.
This mask, belonging to the kindly mother, slightly raises HP.



When worn, the Mask of the Mother increases maximum HP by 10% (15% prior to patch 1.06). Compared to other head armor, the Mask of the Mother is very light, has poor defense and resistances, and cannot be upgraded.

The Mask of the Mother's HP-boosting effect stacks and compounds with the Tiny Being's Ring and the Ring of Favor and Protection.


Cannot be reinforced.
