A finely detailed, painted design (on balsa wood) electrifies this psychedelic design for a horned mask with an expression of rage as if in a counter attack. ‘Primitive art’ form worthy of wall art, this hand carved wood mask’s design corresponds to the traditional diablo mask type used by the Brunka people to represent themselves in their centuries-old Danza de los Diablitos. The antagonist, the toro (bull), represents the invading Spanish.
