Venice, Carnival 2011: Black shot silk mask - Like a lion

Here is another photo of a mask from the 2011 Venice Carnival.
She was part of a bigger group of masks. But I noticed she immediately.
Her plume-mask remember me the mane of a lion. This, combined with her gentle eyes, and her fantastic cloak, made she a very eyes catching mask.

It's hard to render the beauty of her cloak in a photo.
It was like a mix of black shot silk/velvet. The black reflections was constantly changing for every move she made. And the red was strong, even if it was a cloudy morning.
Very nice costume, congratulations!
