The Act 1 Mute Mask was originally created for a Production of The Fantasticks that was set in a warehouse in New Orleans. The Mute was ever present throughout the play. She came and went as if she was just another mask being stored on the wall of the warehouse.
This custom made mask has many traditional features. The mask was modeled after carnival masks, mardi gras masks and masks from festival celebrations worldwide. The tradition of masking at such festivals has produced a wide variety of masks with very sensual expressive qualities.
This theatre mask is a great addition to any collection and works well as either a festival mask or a mask for performance.
