COMMEDIA DEL ARTE (Italian Commedia dell'Arte, from Commedia – "comedy, theater" and l'Arte – "craft, skill, profession"; see "art") is a traditional Italian street theater also called the comedy of masks. It was born in the 10th century in Venice, the city of processions and carnivals. Arlecchino is one of the main characters in the comedy Dell'Arte. He is poor which is seen by his flamboyant diamond-patterned suit. This jumble of rhombuses looks like his entire robe is made up of patches. He is cunning, says funny nonsense, and hits people with a wooden sword. Pretends to be narrow-minded to avoid punishment. The clown costume is made of silver brocade and is as close as possible to the outfit of your favorite clown.
A clown is a common character in the collective consciousness that intrinsically brings fun and joy. That is why craftsmen began to create collectible clowns – decorative accessories that bring fun and bright colors to any home or office. This main hero of theater and circus, beloved by the public all over the world, allows the artist to create the most intricate costumes, expressing any mood its creator chooses!
Clowns are created by professional embroiderers, folk craftsmen and artists of Russia with great attention to each detail.
The handmade collectible limited edition clowns can become wonderful presents, Christmas tree decorations, interior decorations, or parts of magnificent art collections!
