Used Ceremonial Mask 002

“Demon Viper”: Ceremonial Mask 2016-2017

This ceremonial Brunka mask was worn by a participant in the tribe’s annual ceremonial, Danza de los Diablitos of 2016-2017 in the village of Boruca (made by a mask maker from this village).

This powerful mask, carved in balsa wood is a composition mixing both the typical diablito visage with the open maw and fangs of an attacking viper. Once this mask is strapped on the jugador (masked participant), the transformation is stunning and creepy – as can be seen in the valuable context image of this mask being worn.
