In his latest incarnation, Weegit takes the form of a three-foot diameter, red-cedar mask being carved in the Great Hall by Lyle Wilson. Weegit appears in the center of the mask, surrounded by a corona of rays symbolizing the rays of the sun, as well as the sharp tongues he uses to talk himself into so many of his (mis)adventures.
