Theatrical Masks

28. თეატრალური ნიღბები - Theatrical Masks
A masquerade ball or a theatrical performance is unimaginable without masks.
The more unusual the mask, the harder it is to guess who is hiding behind it. They make equal all the people wearing them – a masked servant can be accepted as a noble master and vice versa.
 
Masks are so popular that the most beautiful carnival in Venice is dedicated to them.
Thousands of tourists travel to Venice to take part in the carnival.
The Venice Carnival opens with an ancient Venetian festival dedicated to the liberation of a Princess from the pirates.
