"MORETTA"

Leather mask covered with black velvet, with a nacre or wooden button at the interior part of the mask.. No straps. This mask is kept at the face by a button, helded by the frontal teeth. His function was to obligue the women to rest in silence, with the mouth shut during the carnival new-dark moon face. This was considered a very dangerous period - specially related at the conception women mystery.
