21 Best Radical Fashions From The Schembart Carnival

The Schembart Carnival or Nuremberg Shrovetide Carnival was very popular in Nuremberg, Germany. From 1449, throughout the 15th century, the carnival till 1539 due to the complaints of an influential preacher named Osiander. Osiander objected to his effigy being paraded on a float, depicting him playing backgammon surrounded by fools and devils. Each year, the carnival featured costumed men with bearded masks carved of wood, carrying on and generally acting foolishly. The carnival featured music, food, drink and speakers who poked fun at politicians, persons of power, and government policies.
