Tribo: The King's Fool

Tribo: The King's Fool

Acrylic on 16x20 gallery wrapped canvas.

Tribo was employed by the King and engaged to entertain at special fetes and celebrations. Silly dances, juggling, music, teller of riddles he also would don his mask and do various voices and imitations. His mockery could come close to ridicule thus he had to be quite careful how far he took it less he had no head to use the mask.

The lighting does not do this justice as it was taken with an Iphone.
