Description

These masks reproduce the donkey's head, called "sa caratza de molente," a secondary figure in the propitiatory rites of the traditional Ottana carnival, which opens each year on the evening of January 16 with a performance that takes place around a large bonfire in the town square.

Mostly wild pear trees are used to make the mask, and there may be various decorations, the most famous of which is the flower of life, a symbol of prosperity, hope and auspiciousness, and floral decorations.
