Sweet and docile, this Dalmatian dog mask exudes the charm of the loyal canine. Marcilio Barroco crafts the mask of leather and paints it by hand, expertly conjuring the Dalmatian‘s playful charisma.
About the Artist: "When someone puts on a mask, actually, he is unmasking himself, as hidden aspects of his personality become visible. Brazil is a country of racial mixtures with an enormous diversity of human types and archetypes. It is as if all of the masks of the world have passed through here. The cultural wealth is enormous and with this, a lot of ‘raw material‘ exists to elaborate new pieces and I try to look for images linked to the Brazilian identity. I always seek the opportunity to awaken in others the possibility to be anything, even an artist. The aesthetic phenomenon has a mobilizing potential. A mystery exists in the form; the image has many meanings."
The Marcilio Barroco Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Marcilio Barroco in Brazil. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
