Description

Frowning Diablito

The design of this carved/painted balsa wood mask – a frowning diablito – corresponds to the traditional diablo mask-type used by the indigenous Brunka (southern Pacific watershed of Costa Rica) to represent themselves in their centuries-old Danza de los Diablitos.

This most striking traditional mask is a composition using colour and intricate painted details to acheive a surface that transcends the mask’s materiality (wood) – the finish resembles more a skin! A tour de force mask art by a Brunka tribal mask carver of renown.from Boruca village in the southern Pacific watershed of Costa Rica.

  • Tribe: Boruca (Brunka)
  • Artist: Ronny Fernandez
  • Size: 9 1/4″ x 17 1/2″ (23.5 x 44.5 cm)
