Origins of the Bauta mask can be traced back to the 13th Century. The mask was designed to protect and perfectly disguise the identity of the men and women who wore it; which allowed total freedom of actions. The mask’s form allowed the wearer to eat and drink without having to remove the mask and reveal their identity. The mask's dimensions are approximately 6 ¼” wide, 6” high and 6 ½” deep.
