Mamuthones, Boes and Merdules

The artefact

The passion and the study of Sardinian traditions resulted in the creation of figures inspired by the local carnival costumes: Mamuthones, Boes and Merdules, shaped with skill and made even more striking by the use of dark wood colours, crafted in a terracotta mould and then hand-refined.
