Extravagant Feathered Mask

STORY

Carnival in Venice.

The party has gone on for nearly 1,000 years. For most of that time, Venetians have worn masks like these. Mysterious. Seductive. Liberating.

When people put on masks like these, they give each other permission to do things that would otherwise be forbidden. Which is, of course, the point.

Carnival leads directly into the 40 repentant days of Lent, and a person needs something to repent for.

Worn by lusty Lord Byron and banned by suspicious Napoleon.

Very evocative just hanging on the wall.

Extravagant Feathered Mask (No. 5726). For being noticed above all, yet still mysterious. Made in Venice, Italy of traditional molded papier-mâché with rooster feathered headdress, decorated with glitter and gold braiding. Hand-painted faces vary slightly. Size: 15” high x 24” at widest point. Made in Venice, Italy.
