Horned Masks of Nicola Toce

I've recently learned about these beautiful masks by Nicola Toce of Aliano, Italy. They're hand-made by the artist, using traditional techniques, for the annual Carnivale festival in Aliano, and each year new masks are added to the collection, which is housed in a local museum when not in use for the festival. The masks are currently being featured in a traveling exhibit most recently shown in the nearby town of Avigliano.
