Description

Red Eyed Green Tree Frog

In this richly illustrated red eyed green tree frog ‘eco-mask’, there is featured a face of an ancestral shaman in trance – a forest ‘spirit entity’. The centre-piece forest visage could be interpreted as the frog’s “owner” (a common belief among aboriginal groups of lower Central America), or its ‘alter-ego’.

In this composition, the mask maker from Boruca village Esteban Morales L. – tribal ceremonial participant and esteemed artist – has created a striking study of this venerated amphibian and resident of his territory. It is cleverly melded with the visage of a Brunka ancestor and the rainforest background.

 

  • Tribe: Brunka (Boruca)
  • Artist: Esteban Morales L..
  • Size: 7 1/4 ” wide x 15 ” tall   (18.5 x 38.5cm)
