The Lisa Simpson character half mask is another mask in the collection that was a commedia mask redesign. The collaboration with the director that conceived this project lead us to look closely at the characters of the Commedia dell’Arte. Since the Simpsons is very much a contemporary theatre of archetypes we thought the commedia masks would work well.
Lisa is at the age of 8 a member of Mensa. She is the moral center of her family and since she is left alone by her parents she excels at activities of intelligence and art. She is the family geek. Lisa is the archetype of honesty in the cast of characters. She is a savant for her age.
Lisa has seen herself in a dream as the facilitator of World Peace.
