Venetian Mask Plague Doctor Mask with Drawing of Doctor Itself
This mask was designed to isolate the face allowing breathing. In fact, the beak served as an air filter, in which perfumed essences such as mint or lavender, usually soaked in vinegar, were inserted. Given the relevance in the collective imagination and for what it represented, this mask certainly could not be missed among the masks of the Venice carnival.
This Plague Doctor Mask, also available in the classic version, is decorated entirely by hand by expert decorators according to the most traditional and ancient technique of Venetian masks. 100% Made in Italy certificate.
