From the classic commedia dell'arte character known for his long nose, this dramatic Pulcinella mask in the vibrant colors of mardi gras.  It is the work of Franco, one of the few master mask makers in Venice.


The profession of mask making was founded in Venice, Italy in April 1436 by the Masters of the Painters Guild.  The tradition of hand crafting masks has remained relatively unchanged for hundreds of years.


The artist presses papier mache into molds, coats the mask with plaster, applies a second layer of papier mache, lines the back of the mask with gauze and places it in an oven to stiffen. Finally, the edges are trimmed and final product hand-painted and embellished with feathers, jewels, netting. The stunning and authentic artistry is  appreciated by collectors around the world but even one in your home will be a special treasure to enjoy every day.  For any occasion, as a special gift of history, beauty and art you can't miss.  Give one with a box of chocolates and you are golden.
