Brown & Gold Jolly Columbina Mask
This mask is handmade in Venice, Italy by artisans trained in the centuries-old technique perfected for the Carnevale. Using papier mache, plaster and cloth, the master mask maker creates a wearable piece of art in the finest tradition of Venice.
The masks are designed for wearing, with fabric ties attached, or for display in your home. For display, simply loop some fishing line through the eye holes and hang on a picture hook, or place on a display shelf.
This mask is a traditional Columbina style half mask, intended to obscure only part of the face- ideal for wearing to a party where you might be eating or drinking. The mask is painted a deep brown color, particolor with patches of musical scores, separated by heavy brocade detailing and topped with five stiff curled pennant shaped pieces covered in aged musical scores and trimmed with gold colored bells. A perfect gift for the musician or secret shower singer you know.
Be daring, be outrageous, be swept away in the romantic elegance of Venice!
