Venice enjoyed great wealth. Venetian masks were originally used to hide identities when conducting business for anonymity. Masks were worn by servants to the noblemen doing away with social class. People began to abuse this with decadence, sexual promiscuity (even the nuns and monks engaged in such acts) and gambling became the norm. As society corroded, the masks were worn only for certain periods of time. In this piece the mask is accompanied with a matching pearl necklace and blue sapphire.
