Ceremonial Mask 2018-2019 – Rey Curre

This spectacular ceremonial Brunka mask was worn by a participant in the tribe’s annual ceremonial, Danza de los Diablitos of 2018-2019 in the village of Rey Curre (carved and painted by a mask maker from this village).

This powerful mask, carved in balsa wood and painted is a composition  honouring an ancestor – as a defender of Brunka lifeways and their ancestral lands.

Once this mask is strapped over the head of the jugador (masked participant), the transformation is complete and makes for a stunning and rather threatening effect – as can be seen in the valuable context image of this mask being worn.
