Golden Mask

Golden Mask - golden, venetian, blue eyes, mask
Flag This WallpaperAdd to FavoritesEnlarge Wallpaper
Wallpaper Description:
Venetian masks are a centuries-old tradition of Venice, Italy. The masks are typically worn during the Carnevale (Carnival of Venice), but have been used on many other occasions in the past, usually as a device for hiding the wearer's identity and social status.

The mask would permit the wearer to act more freely in cases where he or she wanted to interact with other members of the society outside the bounds of identity and everyday convention. It was useful for a variety of purposes, some of them illicit or criminal, others just personal, such as romantic encounters.

Venetian masks are characterised by their ornate design, featuring bright colours such as gold or silver and the use of complex decorations in the baroque style. Many designs of Venetian masks stem from Commedia dell'arte. They can be full-face masks (e.g. the bauta) or eye masks (e.g. the Columbina).

I've always had a fascination with Carnival masks and costumes. I love the beautiful gold of this mask along with the contrasting color of the headdress, just wonderful work!
