Welcome to MASK! At MASK we present an amazing collection of Venetian Italian style masks for people of all ages, tastes and imagination.
Situated most frequently at the Ferry Plaza and at local events throughout the year, Mascherari Steve Pogni handcrafts his masks into unique works of art. MASKs are perfect for Carnival, Mardi Gras, Halloween, Burning Man, New Year's or any fun time!
We welcome your photos, videos or comments. Enjoy!
Halloween may be over but New Year's is just around the corner. Celebrate your New Year with a mask that will wow on-lookers and friends!
According to Wikipedia, traditional Venetian masks were usually worn "as a device for hiding the wearer's identity and social status. The mask would permit the wearer to act more freely in cases where he or she wanted to interact with other members of the society outside the bounds of identity and everyday convention. It was thus useful for a variety of purposes, some of them illicit or criminal, others just personal, such as romantic encounters."
Not only are MASKs party masks designed to make your evening a more magical and fun experience, they make terrific Christmas gifts for others, too! It's not just for wearing, it's also great to for starting collections.
