There are several definitions for the word fool but all have a link with the head. A hobby is a model's head in the world of fashion and hairdressing. The name marotte is the diminutive of marie, from which the marotte being by extension the face of the woman, simple, virginal and recognizable among all. Finally, our fancy, here concerned is a bust representing a female figure on which caps and caps are fixed so as not to sabiage and not to wrinkle. Fools also served to milliners as a template to make the caps.
The crazies appeared in the second half of the eighteenth century. These are then female busts made of painted and lacquered boiled cardboard to preserve the decor, which represent a face and bust of a woman. Painted faces have the distinction of being simple and always more or less similar.
Eyes, eyebrows in the shape of a curved line, a red mouth closed and a little pinched, the cleavage is always dressed, simulating clothes and small knotted ribbons. The neck is clear which allowed to tie true scarves or real ribbons, but also necks and as well to fix jewels. Yet all different, the relatively fine features of these faces always smooth and stripped do not identify someone.
It's a face goes everywhere! These heads have a naïve and childish side that gives them an undeniable charm and presence.
