Used Ceremonial Mask 016 SOLD

Spirit of Owl

This raging Boruca Spirit of Owl mask, worn in the Danza/Juego de los Diablitos of 2016-2017 in the village of Boruca, really transforms the wearer as the context image attests. A represenation of this nocturnal hunter, the owl, takes his place on the mask as an element reminiscent of a headdress – the mask wearer’s nagual.

This worn mask is a vivid continuing link to the Brunka peoples’ past and their sense of long history in the southern Pacific coast watershed. A sole macaw feather is still stuck in this carved balsa wood mask.

Mask sold with accompanying photo documentation of this piece being used in this traditional tribal event.

  • Tribe: Boruca (Brunka)
