Adult Gold and Beads Venetian Mask
It’s said that the first Carnival of Venice was celebrated in 1162 AD. No one is exactly sure where the tradition of wearing masks during the carnival came from, but historians are fairly sure it stems from how rigid class hierarchies were in medieval Venice -- wearing masks was the only way Venetians could safely mingle without trespassing on social conventions during their giant party. We’re no experts on Italian history, but we do eat a lot of salami, and we think the tradition stems from the fact that masks are neat.
This festive Venetian mask is decorated with gold and beads, an opulent and somewhat haunting affair that will preserve your anonymity in style. Whether you’re Venetian, Grecian, Frisian, or even Phoenician, you’ll love wearing this fancy carnival mask!
