Doctor of the plague

When man fears something, in reaction, he tries to smile on it. Until the mid-1800s, plagues were a problem for the whole of Europe, which is why the mask worn by doctors when they went to visit patients who feared being infected, became a carnival accessory in Venice. Today the "plague doctor" has completely lost his connotation as a mask bearing bad news, and very often, given the size of the surface, it acts as a background for beautiful decorations! As the costume is a tunic, is only one size!
