This vintage terracotta mask is typical of the kind of scary relief used to decorate buildings and houses already in pre-Roman times. Often found above the door of an older building, they were believed to ward off evil spirits. Today, the tradition lives on in the shape of a decorative mask that can be hung on the wall.
Found in Bologna.
Condition: Very good. This mask is in very good vintage condition with some patina and wear consistent with its age and use. There are no cracks or breaks in the terracotta. Comes with a metal wire ready for hanging.
Dimensions: H 26cm x W 23cm x D 16cm
