Venetian masks represent Venice and all that world of mystery that was around since 1700. Today, unfortunately, there are fewer Venetian craftsmen, teachers who want to share with interested or curious people their knowledge. Along the streets and fields, or we run into windows where “junk” hides the true Venetian artisan products. One of these products is the typical Venetian papier-mâché mask made by hand is then decorated with acrylic paint and imitation gold leaf, and then finish it with paints. The end result, in this case, creates a lively and elegant decoration.
The photos show how a white and neutral mask with skill and imagination can turn into a precious object and collectibles.
