Is Cerbus (The Deer)

This is the traditional carnival from the town of Sinnai, it evokes the deer hunting.
These masks have pre-roman/pagan origins as great part of traditional sardinian masks.
The Cerbus' mask is realised with the fur and horns of the Sardinian Deer, subspecies of the Red Deer, found only in Sardinia and Corsica, faces of participants are dyed in black, with cork ash.
