The Bauta is one of the most recognisable of classic Venetian masks and was popular among both men and women. Completely covering the face the Bauta's wearer becomes unrecognisable, and thanks to the prominent nose and its projecting beak like chin line the wearer’s anonymity was preserved as they could talk, eat and drink without having to remove it. Bauta mask is completed with the addition of the zendal cape- the upper part covering person's hair, and the lower lace disguising the breadth of shoulders- and at the end the classic tricorn black hat. 

Bauta mask is well know as the Giacomo Casanova's mask, but it was worn by men and women, nobles and servants, rich and poor. The significance of Bauta mask was to cover not just the face and identity, but moreovere to destroy, during carnival time, the differences bewteen gender and social class in the ancient Republic of Venice.

VWS collection of Bauta masks includes classic decorations to modern reinterpretation, including gold leaf technique and relief colours, of the most famous traditional venetian mask: The Bauta

*Every mask is a unique handcraft production. You are buying the same model mask with equivalent decoration details and making technique process of the picture, but not exactly the same mask of the photo. Little differences are evidence of authentic craftsmanship work.
