Description

Both models are made of briarwood with methacrylate mouthpiece and finished with fine waxes. They are hand carved with gouges and knife by Gian Paolo Marras in Ottana (NU) is represent typical Sardinian carnival masks.

The Pipa Boe: It is carved with the traditional mask: "caratza de boe" with horns, a star carved in the forehead and floral carvings on the sides. The "caratza de boe" (Ox Mask) is part of the typical Barbaric tradition of the Ottana (NU) carnival, among the best known throughout Sardinia, and represents the struggle between animal instinct and human reason. In carnival performances, in fact, the Boe is chased, whipped and captured by the Merdule, acting out furious brawls, around a large bonfire in the square that has always been held on the evening of January 16.

The Componidori Pipe: It is carved with "su Componidori," the main character of the Oristano equestrian joust. "Su componidori" is an "androgynous" character his costume has male and female elements. In the carnival ride, sitting on a horse, with a stocco he has to thread the greatest number of stars hanging on a thread. It is a propitiatory rite; a large number of strung stars will be a good omen for a prosperous harvest in the fields.
