A description of Arlecchino's mask from Commedia dell' Arte: an actor's handbook:
"A black stocking wound round the lower face and then up over the head is a vestige of the full Carnival mask, lending credence to the alternative African slave suggestion as to his origin. Low forehead with wart, small round eyes."
