This beautiful clown, sitting on the moon, is made of green velvet and green brocade and is decorated with beads. Truffaldino is one of the names that Harlequin, a character from Italian Commedia dell'Arte, goes by. 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. Truffaldino was born in the city of Bergamo and wears clothes, made of pieces of cloth, stitched together, a small hat with a rabbit's tail, a black mask, and a stick on his belt. Truffaldino's character is usually that of a quick-thinking servant, putting his masters', as well as his own, affairs in order.
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!
