I love how you have a mask that you call a tengu mask (Tengu as far as I know it is a japanese monster) in Venice :D

Excellent painting! :fuzzydemon:… The mask of the Tengu Demon (Bird Tengu) is very similar to the mask of the Plague Doctors. When the strongest wave of the plague hit the old world (circa 1346-1351) many doctors use this mask (bird-like) full of flowers and other esences to “clean the infectious air”. They dont know that the fleas of the rats were the real problem…. Venice was one of the places where more people died. :fuzzydemon::fuzzydemon::fuzzydemon:

Thank you...It wasn't one of my best painting I think...
It was really a white-Plague Doctor' s mask I've bought in a shop in Venice.
I know, plague and cholera made so many victims in Venice...even now they publish lots of books and articles about it...
It's a strange, scary town to live in ;)
