The Piangi- or tragedy masks were used in the ancient Greek theatre. This tragedy mask has an expression of the face of a suffering human being. This is exactly what theatre is about, portraying our human emotions.Papier-mâché is a great material to work with. You can finish the white tragedy mask yourself with all types of paints and materials. The white mask has straps so you can wear it or hang it on a wall. In our section Costume masks you see a nice example of a decorated blank papier-mâché tragedy mask of Piangi.
