My World - Venetian Masks

A wide variety of beautifully designed masks on display at shops and stalls in Venice. Not my kind of thing but they are perfect for carnival and masquerade parties.

Are you a mask lover? Do you collect masks?

  8. My girlfriend loves wearing masks (esp when she chats with her friends from all over the world). Masks make her part of a theater show (she told me).

    I love those masks at your last photo.

  16. I traveled to Venice last year and remember seeing these wonderful masks. I am baffled as to why I did not take a picture of a single one. They are so intriguing and make such interesting photographs. Seeing them in your post brings back fond memories of my visit there.

  19. Hi

    These are really gorgeous masks!
    Your photos are excellent.
    When I went to Venice several years ago, I bought a small mask just like one of them in your photo.

  23. The masks look stunningly beautiful. Hopefully one of those days I will finally make it to one of those fancy balls and get the chance to wear a mask, now that would be fun...

  24. Those are exquisite! I just love the detail. I used to collect something similar as a teenager - clown masks and faces. Not happy clowns, but the harlequins and pierots.
