Coloured Boes mask
This alder wood engraved and hand-painted mask is part of a collection of zoomorphic figures (an ox, in this case) of the traditional carrasecare, the carnival of Ottana. The mask features the typical star or rose on the forefront and stylised leafs on the cheeks, symbols of good luck.
