I've always wanted to go to the carnival in Venice! This is a great shot. Kind of erie too. What is the story behind this mask? I know it is supposed to be associated with the plauge, yes?

The Bauta, it's one of the most ancient kind of mask in Venezia.
It's not directly link to plague, but have an elaborate meaning, because was uased in different occasion, not only during carnival, but in the past also in the ordinary life.
The main purpose was to let people unrecognizable and make all people free and without differences between poor and rich men.

There is a mask that it's strongly and directly link with the plague, the name is "el medico dea peste" in english is "the doctor of the plague" :)
I took a pic also of this mask, I'll upload soon, ok? :) :hug: :aww:

Hmmm it is beautiful, Though i must say i would have liked to see it in a different angle. Say from the person's stomach looking up words towards the face. What do you think?

I think that what you tell it's correct, but in this case I want to capture and pose the attenction on the mask only :)
I like this inespressive mask, so creepy and so attractive too :)
