From the sublime to the ridiculous...Think Renaissance Italy, where masks for drama originated in the troupe, Commedia del Arté. These characters represented by it have been used from Shakespeare and Opera, right up to today’s characters used in comedy and drama. Fascinating history and fascinating masks to decorate your wall. We also make incredible custom lit sconces from these masks, that go great with, say, Scalamandre mosaic fish wallpaper...Each one is different and named—this one is Il Capitano”. They are great to collect. Do an entire wall with them!
