Abeline is a unique, hand made piece created by french mask maker Candice Angelini. It is crafted of human hair and teeth, antique ribbons,a and paper.

Abeline is inspired by the terrible life conditions and diseases of the 19th Century. Plague, Syphilis, Cholera …

Abeline could had been a young girl living during that era in the poorest stratas of society. She would have died in her prime.

Candice Angelini is a self-taught artist whose work revolves around the threshold between life to death and the idea of memorialisation. Her fascination for 19th Century France makes her believe she’s feel stuck in time, between her own era and the past. A believer in past lives, Angelini creates masks that evokes her relationship to former lives and identities contained within her. Each of her sculptures, made of paper, antique materials and often real human hair or teeth are unique, and channels a bit of the past souls it once was attached to.
