Description

Art interior doll OOAK, Venetian carnival character with mask

"Moretta" is a black velvet round mask which only has two holes for eyes and no mouth hole at all. The mask is named by its color because the word "moretta" derives from Venetian term "moro" which means "black". The "moretta" mask was fixed to the woman's face by a little button held between the lips what made the wearer unable to speak. That was the reason why "moretta" was so much loved by men. No wonder - their beloved ladies turned mute. The other names of this mask are "Men's Delight" or "Servietta Muta". The mask was especially popular at Venetian carnivals among plain womenfolk and servants. The history of the mask inspired me to create my "Housemaid PIERETTA" doll with a "moretta" mask.

Pierreta is a smart, lively and talkative woman with the traces of bygone beauty on her face. Though she is in her early forties, her tender ivory skin, red copper hair and deep blue eyes reflecting the azure depth of the Venetian lagoon still make men's hearts beat faster... She serves at the old Venetian palazzo which she decorates with fresh flowers.

Pieretta, though being an awful chatter-box, is also a very attentive and polite listener. Her ears are always open to all kind of information: your life stories, gossips and secrets, doubts and complaints, whatever you are eager to share with somebody but never dare to. She will comfort you in a sorrow and will rejoice to your success. She is definitely a very loyal companion.

Now let's study the doll closely. Pieretta's head, arms and legs are sculptured from the oven-baked clay. The face and eyes are painted with natural pigments and acrylic colors. The copper curls are natural sheep mohair. The body is soft and has a wired frame inside. Pieretta is fixed on the wooden stand and she leans her elbow on the marble balustrade (made by me from wooden parts). She is holding the black "moretta" mask in one hand, and the basket with flowers - in the other hand. All her garment is sewn by me. The size of the doll is 50 cm/ 20".

This doll is not a toy but an interior item. Please don't wash it. The face and hands can be wiped with a dry soft cloth.

Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have on this doll. I am happy to communicate. More photos of the doll are here:
