Agamemnon Mask

$98.00

The Greek Theatre Mask of Agamemnon is described as follows:

Continuing a tradition that goes all the way back to the Iliad, Agamemnon is presented as a king and commander who is not quite up to his responsibilities. Though sympathetic to Hecuba’s plight, he is initially deaf to her pleas out of concern for his reputation with the army. Hecuba wins him over, however, apparently by referring to his sexual relationship with her daughter Cassandra. Still concerned for his reputation, Agamemnon refuses to help Hecuba, but allows her to act without interference. Agamemnon is “political” like Odysseus, but without the latter’s cleverness and devotion to the (perceived) greater good of the Greeks.

Images: Genuinely cares about Hecuba. Calm and Pride.

This Greek Theatre Mask is made of neoprene, a rigid latex, and has an adjustable strap.
