Used Ceremonial Mask 022 SOLD

Ancestor

Carved from balsa wood, painted and worn during the three days of this year’s annual ceremony – this evocative ancestor mask truly transforms the wearer as one shall see looking at the accompanying context images. Featuring a jade-like visage, a gold and feather headdress, and even replicated pre-Hispanic cast gold earrings – a regal sight to behold.

Ultimately, the theme of this tribal mask represents the diablito – the ‘pagan’ Native – a burlesque of how the invading Europeans would have seen the indigenous people.

This mask was worn in the annual Danza de los Diablitos. Galería Namu acquired it after the 2016-2017 ceremony was finished in the village of Boruca, Costa Rica.  Ideal for collectors as unique carved wood traditional art.

  • Tribe: Brunka (Boruca)
  • Size: 10″ x 17 3/4” (25.5 x 45 cm)
  • Artist: Esteban Morales L.
