Venetian Masks

£24.95

Hand carved in Greenheart by traditional icon carvers in Bali.

Greenheart is a timber that grows on field borders in Indonesia and has a light to dark green core to its colour. It is very flexible and was used until the 1970s to provide shafts for ponies and traps.

The masks are a collaboration of the southern European tradition of Comedia dell Arte theatre style mask and the more naturalistic flowing mask used for centuries in Balinese religious ceremonies. These ceremonies, such as the Balinese Day of the Dead (Nyepi), use a range of masks and costumes.

Our masks make an interesting addition for a wall or cabinet having an integral hanger at the back of the mask. On the reverse it is still possible to see the carvers marks made in the process of the production of the mask.
