Woven Mask 010

Armadillo Head

These split chunga palm leaf and natural dyes masks are created by Emberá (a related, but distinct tribe from the Wounaan) basket weavers. Originally these masks were woven inspired by the jaibaná’s (medicine people, or shamans) carved balsa wood masks hung around the interior of a dwelling where rituals take place. Some masks are representations of fantastic beings, whereas others are recognizable animals.

This particularly whimsical rendering of an armadillo has handsome cultural geometric motifs around the mask opening .
