Carnival Mask Collection

The collection comprises 26 masks carved of wood from the linden tree and worn by carnival figures from Cerkno. Alongside the oldest, archaic masks dating back to pagan times, the figures also wear masks representing various social and professional groups, masks personifying human characteristics, particularities, diseases, and others. Masks bearing such a strong resemblance to humans cannot be found elsewhere in Slovenia.
