Pierrot and clown

Pierrot and the Clown

First, there was the clown.  This is a mask created by Hideo Komatsu.  It wasn’t difficult to fold, and the end result was nice.  Komatsu also designed a witch mask.  The witch certainly looked wicked.  From the clown mask, I thought of creating a mask of Pierrot, the popular commedia dell’arte character with a sad, expressive face and a trademark tear-drop.  The witch design came in handy, and with some changes the witch lost her long lashes and became Pierrot.  You can see them side-by-side in the picture above.
