The Procne character half mask is the daughter of Pandion, King of Thebes. She kills her son and feeds him to her husband Tereus to revenge his rape and mutilation of her sister. She prays to the gods to be turned into a bird to escape Tereus’s wrath. The gods turn her into a Nightingale
This mask belongs to Timberlake Wertenbaker’s Play, Love of the Nightingale. Ask for it in a different paint treatment if you’d like. There’s no extra cost.
This lovely bird half mask is usable for many styles of masked theatre. It has a wonderful expressive range.
