COMMON THEMES - Ancestoral flocks

The wild flock
First to enter the carnival scene is very often a wild herd of horned figures, covered in fleece and girdled by heavy garlands of ringing cowbells. It is a very vivid representation of a half-forgotten past in pastoral wilderness which comes back every year to take its toll on the community.

Wayward ancestors
“The old ones”, the “uncles”, the “bearded ones” are the names often popularly given to this kind of masks, which do represent the founding fathers, the ancestors, the dead, who are found to come back yearly to take control.
