Common criminals—thieves and bandits—were locked in chains and sent to the dungeon where they became hunted fodder by the most dangerous prisoners. These vile predators were muzzled to protect the bodies of those awaiting public execution.
Masks were not only the burden of the ferocious. Enemies of the state were also masked to conceal their identity and to stop them from leaking secrets of the crown to other convicts. In this way, the iron mask became a symbol of failed rebellion.
These horrors permeate the design of The Old World Cannibal Facemask.
One can imagine the mask's cold steel and fleshy leather straps hammered together in the distant echo of screams. The history. The craftsmanship. Your unforgettable silhouette on stage. An escape from the ordinary.
