During the Black Plague, doctors wore a mask with a bird-like beak to protect them from being infected by the disease, which they believed was airborne. To battle this imaginary threat, the long beak was packed with sweet smells, such as dried flowers, herbs and spices. This leather-look black mask with clear eye lens will give that same sinister look to your next Halloween costume! Just add a dark robe with hood for a great effect. One size fits all.
