Venetian Carnival Mask by Matt Buckley from the EDGE collection. The Carnival of Venice is an Italian tradition that goes back many centuries. Synonymous with this major ten day event is the wearing of elaborate costumes and masks. The masks themselves date back to the 13th century where they would be worn at parties and other social occasions. There are a number of different styles of mask, each with different origins. Matt Buckley's striking sculpture showcases the Columbina style of half-mask. This sculpture comes finished in red and gold over white but there are also versions in RED EDM02R, ANTIQUE WHITE EDM02W, BURNISH EDMS02 and TEAL EDM02T.
Comes with a metal presentation stand but also includes a bracket that allows it to be mounted flush on a wall.
