The artefact

This captivating hide mask characterised by an elegant face with plain features is taken from the evocative and famous mask of the Sartiglia, an equestrian celebration of the traditional carnival of Oristano. Finely handcrafted, it is shaped on a wooden mould with procedures personalised by this craftsman. It is part of the Maschere della Sardegna (Masks of Sardinia) line, which appealingly interprets the distinctive masks of the local carnival.
