Sardinia  I don't actually know what this is, if it is fashion or tradition, but it sure looks pagan to me! :D

Mamuthones (Nuoro, Italian Sardinia) in traditional carnival costume used for pre-Christian rites to ancient gods of agriculture. The mask is carved in pieces of wild pear wood & darkened alder walnut.

The day of Sant’Antonio, January 17th, is one of the most popular festivals in Sardinia; the saint is the protector of animals and fire, and each year bonfires are lit to symbolise purification and renewal, to ward off the cold winter and welcome spring.

Boe di Ottana, Sardinia - More of that weird creepy cultural stuff which I believe celebrates the victory of the islanders over the invading Moors.
