Venetian Carnival Mask by Matt Buckley - from the EDGE contemporary sculpture 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.
