Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola; Tan

Doge's Death Mask, Venice, Italy

Doge’s Death Mask, Venice, Italy

Day 100 in the Crayola Challenge and we are looking for Tan? Tan????? I was hoping for something outlandish here! But Tan it is! Tan, added to Crayola in 1958, is also known as Sandy Beach in the “Discovery Series,” and Grand Canyon, the color for Arizona, in the “State Crayon Collection.”

 My photo is of a Doge Death Mask from Venice, Italy. It can be seen in the Doge’s Palace. The seat of the Doge was initiated in 726. While the Doge, or military leader, had great power he was constantly under strict surveillance. He had to wait for other officials to be present before opening dispatches from foreign powers and he was not allowed to possess any property in a foreign land. The Doge ruled for life (although some were forcibly removed from office) After the Doge’s death an inquisitori passed judgement on his acts and if anything improper was found, compensation would be taken from the Doge’s estate. I like that idea, and wish it could be applied to our government officials today!

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge

Check out some of the other 150+ challenge participants, it’s amazing what we have done with the Crayola colors!

    That is a really creepy mask. I don’t like it at all! Over here we would say tan was a much more orange colour. I often have tan coloured shoes – there is shoe polish called dark tan and light tan, both of which are darker than your mask. I am not sure what colour I would call it, maybe flesh coloured, but I don’t like to look at it too long to decide!!!
