Diablo Miniature Brunka Mask
Miniature Brunka masks, such as this classic diablo version, represent the worn masks of the traditional, hand-carved wood diablo mask-type used by the Brunka in their centuries-old Danza de los Diablitos. It is an annual ceremonial event whereby the antagonist, the bull, represents the invading Spanish. This particular mask – “ancestral camuflage” – features an expressively serene classic diablo design; the intricate surface painting, featuring allusions to animal skins and shamanic power lines, makes this wall art a striking decoration piece.
