Product Description

This fantastic mask is designed to look like a medieval jester with the three fabric points (two blue and one red) to imitate the ears on a jester’s hood. The points, or ears, are wired and can be bent and shaped to suit your personal tastes. Each point also has a large bell on the end for that musical jingling that always accompanies a jester. The main body of the mask is cream and is made from plaster, just like traditional Venetian masks. The mask has a blue and a red diamond trimmed with gold braid around each eye hole. The whole mask is then trimmed with a decorative gold braid. Fastens with ribbon ties.

Venetian masks are synonymous with the famous Carnival of Venice. Traditionally people were allowed to wear their masks between the festival of Santo Stefano and the start of the carnival season at midnight of Shrove Tuesday. People were also allowed to wear masks on ascension and from October 5th right through to Christmas. Because of this the people of Venice would spend a large portion of the year in disguise.

Great for historical, Halloween, around the world or nations themed parties or events.
