During Roman times the area that is now known as Venice was little more than a scattering of fishing communities. Though they were still technically inside the empire and considered Roman’s rather than the “Barbarians” who lived beyond the Alps in the Provinces. It was during the Mongol invasions of Europe that people fled to the Islands of Venice to create a city that would become one of the most powerful maritime cultures of the Renaissance Era. So, it’s no wonder why there is so much Roman influence in the art and culture of Venice to this day. You see this showing up in a bold Black venetian roman mask like this one.
If you need to show up and show out at a costume party or masquerade ball, but you don’t want to go over the top with an overly elaborate mask, then this Black venetian roman mask might be the perfect fit for the occasion. It is basic black, yet far from ordinary. The dimensional detail is impressive without having to resort to bright colors. Best of all it is sculpted to fit the chiseled features of a masculine face.
