Carved from balsa wood, this wood mask’s complex design corresponds to the traditional diablo mask-type used by the Brunka to represent themselves in their centuries-old Danza de los Diablitos. The antagonist, the toro (bull), represents the invading Spanish.
Edixon Mora L. (native of Boruca village) this mask’s creator, acheives a complex design, both in the carving as well as the multi-layered painted surface. This “petrified” diablo is certainly a stunning addition to a decorative mask collection or as wall art decor.
