MAMUTHONES & ISSOHADORES: Ancient Pagan Carnival in Barbagia. Mamuthones and Issohadores are two traditional masks still seen during the ancient pagan Carnival held in the small town of Mamoiada (Sardinia, Italy). I decided not to focus on the main event (the public procession), but rather on what happens before, backstage, and during the dressing ceremony… a very private and secluded matter that takes over three hours and is not open to the public. Here you can see and learn what this festival means to the individuals who wear the mask... plus 30kg of iron bells and goat skins.
