Musical Note Mask

No. 5727



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.

Musical Note Mask (No. 5727). Made in Venice, Italy of traditional molded papier-mâché, acrylic paint, decorated with real sheet music, golden leaf, with golden bell adornment. Hand-painted faces vary slightly. Size: 12” high x 11” wide.
