Large ringing Mamuthone sculpture

The artefact

The charismatic figure of the mamuthone, the island's carnival traditional mask, characterised by the numerous bells it carries on its shoulders, is successfully reproduced in this matte black ceramic sculpture, which stands out for the original addition of a real cowbell. Made of terracotta with slip, it is part of the Maschere Antiche (ancient masks) line, an original production of this ceramist.
