Doctor of the plague with stucco
The doctor of the plague is a typical Venetian mask, but quickly spread in many other countries.
The mask is the first prototype of mask “antigas” in the sense that the long nose was filled with herbs to filter the stench coming from the sick of the disease. The eyes were covered with pieces of glass that served as glasses.
The terrifying aspect of the plague doctor was used to scare away evil spirits, that were thought to be the cause of the disease.
The mask is hand-decorated with stucco embossed.
