Covet: Venetian Masks

Never have I been excited to buy a souvenir as I was when searching for the perfect Venetian mask on my trip to Italy. For me they are so, theatrical and grand. Love it!

Why should the world be overwise,
In counting all our tears and sighs?
Nay, let them only see us, while
We wear the mask.

-Paul Laurence Dunbar
