This oversize carved/painted balsa wood mask’s design corresponds to the older traditional diablo mask-type used by the Brunka to represent themselves in their centuries-old Danza de los Diablitos.
This most striking, stacked ceremonial masks composition – chieftain protectors – is a ‘tour de force’ created by a Brunka mask carver of renown. Two ceremonial mask visages flow seamlessly down from the top and up from the bottom of this headdressed ancestral chieftain. Featured on the chief are seen ancestral gold accoutrements.
