Authentic Models Bouffon Venice
Product Code: AU0343
Black and gold jester masquerade mask carnival character on stand.
Achieve an enchanting focal point in the heart of your design scheme with the Authentic Models Bouffon Venice.
Depicting an eclectic masked carnival character, this unusual home accessory represents one of the greatest tragedies of 16th century English renaissance drama - the fateful play, 'The Duchess of Malfi.'
A love story between a widowed Duchess and her steward fiancee of a significantly lower class - the scorned lovers' fate is sealed when the Duke of Calabria and the Duchess's twin brother hire a hit man to kill the fateful newlyweds.
This resin Venetian mask sculpture represents a joyful jester painted in black and gold, representing in literature the notion of insight, common sense and honesty.
Elevated from a weighted base, the mask will combine with the accenting Duke and Duchess of Malfi masks from the Authentic Models collection for a layered ambience of designer style.
Please note: Each mask is hand sculpted with no two exactly alike making this a personalised statement for your home interior space.
