This devil-face wall mask, carved from the precious tropical hardwood known locally as cedro amargo, is a smaller version of the traditional, hand-carved wood diablo mask-type used by the Brunka to represent themselves in their centuries-old Danza de los Diablitos. The heavy eye-lids are a traditional attribute of these particular tribal masks. In the ceremony, the antagonist, the toro (bull), represents the invading Spanish. Carved by the renowned Brunka mask maker, Edixon Mora of Boruca village. Woven through this carved composition is the male quetzal birds – a sacred Central American bird of the Cloud Forest.
