Pulcinella Masks

Newman wearing a handcrafted Commedia mask: Pulcinella

Another kind of working class hero is Pulcinella from Napoli. The mask for this pot-bellied hunchbacked cuss is strikingly similar to the mask of Maccus, from the ancient Roman Comedies and is recognizeable for its huge hook beak of a nose. Pulcinella spawned the very politically incorrect (and hugely popular) "Mr Punch" of the brutal English "Punch and Judy" puppet shows and became the mask of "Teaser" in the bawdy "Obby 'os and Teaser" fertility ritual.

Newman and his Balinese wife Ida Ayu Putu Sri Juniari (Juni Newman) now have a studio in the performance mask capital of the universe; Ubud, Bali, from which we continue to make and supply fine leather Commedia Masks September through May. May through August we work in our Takilma, Oregon Studio. We ship them worldwide via Fed Ex from our Balinese sister company C.V.Commedia Mask (or our Oregon Studio when we're there). We can usually get the masks delivered anywhere in the world within ten days of receiving an order. If you are in Ubud, give us a call at 0812 3602 6497.
