Traditional Cedar Wood Small Mask
This traditional cedar wood wall mask, carved from the esteemed tropical hardwood cedro amargo, is a smaller version of the traditional, hand-carved wood diablo mask-type used by the Brunka to represent themselves in their centuries-old Danza de los Diablitos. This particular cut of cedro is two-toned and possesses a lovely grain.
In the ceremony, the antagonist, the toro (bull), represents the invading Spanish. Carved by the renowned Brunka mask maker, Omer Morales, mask maker of note from Boruca village in the southern Pacific coast watershed.
