Ecological-Diablo Mask 012

Motmot Totem

The hybrid ‘eco-diablo’ mask type is a fusion, or hybrid, of the traditionally worn diablo Brunka mask, used in the annually celebrated Danza de los Diablitos, combined with compositional elements borrowed from their natural surroundings including tropical animals resident in Brunka territory such as this attractive motmot.

This cleverly composed ‘eco-diablo’ mask brings together a typical Brunka diablo as a “canvas” supporting this cheeky bird. The richness of composition and different elements depicted, all exploding with colour, make a true visual medley.

This evolution and exploration of form slowly came about through an emphasis and play with design elements, seen in certain older diablo masks, of an ‘alter-ego’, or totem animal, featured on the forehead, and/or chin, of the mask.
