Morte (Death)
Commedia dell’Arte Mask

£55.00 excl. VAT

A useful addition to a plot, Morte (Death) is not always successful in his aims. He may appear to Pantalone, stalk Capitano for the unpaid debt of his soul, or be outwitted by Pulcinella in a game of cards. Morte’s philosophical musings to the audience on the fragility of existence and numerous possibilities for it’s end can be a dark delight, but, as in Punch and Judy, it is always satisfying to see Death cheated even if only temporarily.

Tough and lightweight Morte (Death) Commedia mask.
Made of high impact plastic.
Hand painted to performance standard finish.
Ideal for professional or student use.
Each mask comes supplied with a length of black elastic  and foam pads for comfort.
