Mouflon mask

The artefact

The mouflon, symbolic animal of the island’s fauna, is represented in its charismatic elegance in this mask in painted hide with the addition of the frontal decoration taken from the masks of the famous carnival of the local tradition. Finished with a special strap so that it can be worn, it is finely handcrafted, shaped on a wooden mould with procedures personalised by this craftsman. It is part of the Animali della Sardegna (Animals of Sardinia) line, which appealingly interprets the distinctive local fauna.
