The Columbina AKA Columbine, a half mask and has golden or silver decorations as the norm as well as Feathers and crystals which are also part of it’s most common adornments. It can be held to the face by means of a baton or tied at the back through a ribbon, as most other venetian masks.
The Columbina mask was polularised by an early actress in the Commedia dell’arte which had the same name (Columbine). It is said that this was designed solely for this lady, as her beauty was such that they didn’t want to cover the whole of her face.
