Each hand finished mask might vary in decoration, adornments and style. This is a Venetian Bauta Casanova mask. This is one of the best-known styles of mask, which was used to conceal your identity. The Bauta mask covers the whole face. The top of the mask is square and the bottom juts out at the chin. There is no mouth definition; the nose mold is very pointed with no breathing holes. The eye holes are rounded. The mask is painted off-white with shading accents to make it look worn. Raised gold baroque designs outline the edges of the mask. Faux jewels decorate the mask and at the centre of the forehead is a circular jewel design. This mask is used by either gender for festivals and masquerades. Complete the original look with a tricorn hat and a hooded cape.
