The comedy and tragedy masks are some of the most famous in the world. Otherwise known as the ‘sock and buskin’, they’re been used as a symbol for comedy and drama since the days of Ancient Greece. In particular, they were worn during open-air theatre at the time.

They represent Commedia and Tragedia or ‘Mascherade Ride”, meaning ‘mask that laughs’ and “Maschere Piange”, which means ‘mask that cries’.

Many people like to have these masks decorating their home, especially if they love theatre or acting. As iconic symbols for the arts, they’re also popular for theatre, drama, film and television departments.
