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. Coviello is a minor character in the Commedia dell'arte. Coviello acts with cunning, pressure, arrogance, invention, and intelligence; he makes a lot of grimaces, dances, and plays mandolin or guitar. He has a stick in his belt. Coviello's mask is red with a long beak-like nose. He often wears glasses. Coviello is wearing a skin-tight suit and a hat with feathers on his head.
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!
