Mascaron

(16/9) 1 min 36

silent video

In architecture, a mascaron ornament is a face, usually human, sometimes frightening or chimeric whose function was originally to frighten away evil spirits so that they would not enter the building. This video reminds to the monstrous faces on some beautiful baroque facades I could discover during my stay in Scicli (Sicily). To realize the video, I used almond paste for its malleability, its whiteness and sweetness.
